Nothing says fall like pumpkin…
With the holidays quickly approaching, desserts are becoming even more tempting. Instead of feeling guilty for eating sweets, or not enjoying the holiday flavors, try some healthy recipes instead!
I was skeptical…so many of the “healthy” muffins I have tried have been terrible, but I was feeling adventurous, so my son and I decided to try them! 🙂
I was so glad we did. These muffins were great!!
At only 171 calories, I couldn’t believe what a jackpot these are. My husband loved them as well!
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons almond butter
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I used skim milk instead.)
- 2 and 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Directions from MakingThymeForHealth.com
“Preheat the oven to 350°F and then grease or line a muffin tin for 12 muffins.
Starting with the wet ingredients first (pumpkin, maple syrup, eggs, etc.) layer everything except the chocolate chips into a blender or a food processor and blend for about 30 seconds, or until smooth.
Using a spoon, gently stir the chocolate chips into the batter. Pour the batter into the muffin tin, filling each about 3/4th of the way full. Bake in the oven for 22 minutes, until light golden brown.
Allow to to cool for at least 10-15 minutes before stuffing in your face.”
