I’ve thought long and hard about the perfect recipe to start this blog with. Better start on a good note right? I want this recipe to bring you back for all the other recipes to come, & I am pretty sure I did a good job; just don’t let the long name scare you away. Since we are so close to Thanksgiving I can’t help but crave pumpkin & even though Thanksgiving is only less than a week away, I had to make my pre-appetizer pumpkin muffin snack to get me ready for the big day.
Fresh from the oven, one bite into this muffin gives you a nice, crusty top, soft, fluffy muffin, & ooey gooey center. The aroma from the spices fills your house. You definitely won’t be needing to use a scented candle the day that you bake these. More good news is, this muffin is only 145 calories, so you calorie counters out there (aka me & My Fitness Pal friends) won’t completely wreck your diet eating one of these. You can further “healthify” these muffins using splenda or whatnot (I personally don’t go that far…some things [sugar] I can’t give up), but I used unsweetened applesauce to replace the oil, & they are perfectly moist still. Enjoy!
