Pumpkin Spice Muffins

I had a can of pumpkin and was in the mood for some pumpkin muffins. I literally just tossed all kinds of ingredients that I thought would work well into some bowls. These are by far my favourite muffins I've ever made. Not that I make muffins often, but they were absolutely delicious. You can tell from the picture the texture was a little different, but to be honest that's what I really enjoyed about them, they weren't your typical doughy muffin they were just... blissful, yum!

Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Ingredients:
  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup splenda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup flax meal
  • 1/2 cup of water
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Mix your dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. In a large bowl mix wet ingredients together. Slowly mix your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients. Spoon your mix into muffin liners.

Bake for 20-22 minutes.

Sweet Potato Cookies

I can't seem to find the recipe I made for the sweet potatoes, which makes me really sad because these really were a good cookie, but there are so many great sweet potato recipes on the internet that I'm sure you can find an amazing one if you look hard enough!

Enjoy!
