Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin time, pumpkin time!! EEKK!! I  must admit I have a huge obsession with making mini muffins! Making recipes with pumpkin in it gives me great thrill. I enjoy the flavor and the knowledge that the Holiday's are right around the corner (which means I need to kick the speed up and get moving on Holiday recipes). What more is there to say about this recipe? I love pumpkin muffins and bread so give this a try and I hope you enjoy. Remember, use pure ingredients vs. the bad ingredients. Pure ingredients when using give such a deeper flavor and understanding to the flavors. These are the most moist muffins you will ever try, I promise you that!

You Will Need:

3 Cups Organic All-Purpose Flour
2 tbsp Organic Homemade Pumpkin Spice
2 tsp Baking Soda (Bob's Red Mill)
1 tbsp Baking Powder (Bob's Red Mill)
2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Organic Pure Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Raw Agave
1 (16 oz. can) Organic Pumpkin Puree (not pie)
3 Large Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
1 Cup Organic Applesauce

Mix all the dry ingredients, except the sugar, into a bowl, mix together well, and set aside

Mix the eggs, vanilla, sugar, agave, and applesauce into another bowl; mix well (there is no need for a stand mixer here, this is easy without)

Add the pumpkin puree (you can def use homemade, but that is one ingredient I would rather not make homemade! Long process and never turns out)

Whisk in dry ingredients

Fold together with a silicone spatula 

Butter your pans and pour 3/4 of the way full; I used mini muffins and they were easier to bake up and the kids loved them! Bake at 350 degrees, cook the large loaf 30 minutes or until center comes out clean with a knife or bamboo toothpick; cook the mini muffins for 15 minutes (not any longer-15 always works perfect for these); and the mini loaf breads cook for 20-30 minutes or until insert is clean in the middle

Maybe I am a nerd, but I think these babies are BEAUTIFUL! Extremely moist, fluffy, and perfect for a school snack or snack just because, even on the Holiday table!
