Pumpkin Muffins

So good with any meal!! Fast, healthily and great for snacks too!! I love love love pumpkin and this is a great no fail recipe!

(I put some chopped walnuts on a few, because they are so yummy!)


1/2 teaspoon cloves

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup applesauce

1 tablespoon oil

4 egg whites, lightly beaten

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/3 cup water

walnuts optional

1. Heat oven to 350.

2. In a large bowl, mix together cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, salt, baking soda, and flour. Add applesauce, oil, pumpkin and eggs. Stir until JUST moist. Over stirring will cause the muffins to have pointy tops :( No one likes a pointy muffins. Add nuts if you want (I added mine on top).

3. Spray or grease muffin tins or use paper liners for easy clean up. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake 20 minutes or until center is set.

* These were so moist! My husband couldn't believe they were low fat! That is a good sign:)

* Add raisins,craisens or chocolate chips for fun!
