Pumpkin Muffins
Cinnamon Sugar Topping (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.​

  2. In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.

  3. In a large bowl combine pumpkin puree with both sugars, mixing to combine. Add apple sauce, oil, and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a uniform batter has formed. Be careful not to over-mix.

  4. Fill muffin molds 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

  5. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

  6. To top the muffins, combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stovetop. Lightly brush each top with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. 

  7. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. 

Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing - Serve these muffins immediately. They come out of the oven warm, buttery, and hard to resist! Store leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. You can also freeze these muffins for up to 2 months. To thaw, pull the muffins from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for several hours.

Recipe Tips

  1. The most accurate way to measure flour is to spoon it into your measuring cup, leveling it off with the back of a knife.
  2. Let your muffins cool for 10 minutes before flipping them out onto a wire cooling rack.
