Description

These Healthy Maple Glazed Pumpkin Muffins use whole grains, less oil, and less sugar to make a jumbo fall muffin. Yummm.


Ingredients

For the Muffins

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon each cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 eggs

For the Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix the dry ingredients (flours, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and sugar). In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (pumpkin, oil, maple syrup, milk, and eggs).
  2. Combine the dry and wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring until just combined. Fill each muffin tin almost to the top with a scoop of batter – I like to use an old fashioned ice cream scoop with the little thumb press to get a nice rounded top.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are puffy and spring back when you press them. Remove from the muffin pan and let cool before glazing.
  4. For the glaze, melt butter in saucepan. Add powdered sugar and vanilla – it will be thick and sticky. Stir in maple syrup. Add water until desired consistency is reached.
