Healthy Pumpkin Spice Muffins. The perfect fall treat!
It’s official, pumpkin season is in full swing! I love seeing the bright orange pumpkins outside of my grocery story every week, they add so much fun colour to the season. I’m a huge fan of anything pumpkin flavoured, which is why I shared my recipe for a Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte with you last week. Now it’s time to move from latte’s to muffins!
You see that muffin on the plate? Normally, I only try half of the muffin to make sure it meets The Fit Housewife standards, then I give my kids the rest to see if they like it. Well, this time, I couldn’t stop at just half…yup, I ate the whole thing because it was just than darn good!
Pumpkin mixed with dark chocolate and spices equals healthy comfort food.
Check out that ooey gooey chocolate inside that muffin. I suppose you would like to know how I made these healthier than your traditional Pumpkin Spice Muffin:
- I used yogurt and coconut oil instead of butter and vegetable oil
- I added a secret veggie for a nutritional boost
- I used dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate for it’s antioxidant benefits
In this recipe, I used canned pure pumpkin, but feel free to buy your own pumpkin and make your own pumpkin puree for this recipe.
Enjoy the flavors of fall in these Healthy Pumpkin Spice Muffins!
