My “Secret Healthy” Muffin Recipe
I'm on a health kick lately--eating things that have less ingredients and are clean. Since I do most of the cooking in my household, I wanted to make sure the food I'm putting in front of my family are things I know will be good for them AND taste good. My husband Dave is one of the pickiest eaters I know, and even he approved of this muffin recipe!
Here's what you need;
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 cup banana (it's best to use ripe)
1/2 cup of honey
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (dark chocolate is healthiest)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup soy or almond milk
Mix your wet ingredients together first, then mix in the dry ingredients. Place batter in muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Muffin tops should be firm when done. This recipe will make about 18 muffins, each are about 260 calories.
You'll notice that this recipe really doesn't contain any granulated sugar. The honey and bananas act as a natural sweetener...and the chocolate chips of course. These muffins will fill you up and leave you feeling full longer. I've been eating one of these muffins for breakfast and pairing it with an apple! I'm usually full right up until lunch time!
Try this recipe and let me know how you like it! If you've got a pumpkin spice lover in your family, the'll really like these muffins!
