Pumpkin Nut Muffins Recipe
And coincidentally, these are dairy-free for those with a milk intolerance. Not sure if they can be made gluten-free, but I think I’ll test it out soon with a GF flour and see. If anyone has a favorite GF mix, feel free to comment, I heard Williams Sonoma’s GF mix is really good.
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (King Arthur)
3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour (King Arthur)
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 large egg whites
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and lightly spray liners with oil for easy removal.
In a medium bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking soda, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix pumpkin puree, oil, egg whites and vanilla; beat at medium speed until thick. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
Add flour mixture to the wet mixture, then blend at low speed until combined; do not over mix. Fold in chopped nuts.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tin and bake on the center rack for 24 – 26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let them cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Makes 12 muffins.
