Spiced Pumpkin Muffins

Adapted from a recipe on Pinch My Salt


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. oil (used olive oil)
  • 2 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2 standard size 12 cup muffin tins.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, oil, honey, eggs, applesauce and vanilla.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir together until just combined. Fold in the chopped pecans.
  5. Spoon the batter evenly between the muffin cups. They will be about half way full before baking.
  6. Bake 15 – 20 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven. Muffins are done when they spring back lightly to the touch or when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Enjoy!
