Whip up some healthy pumpkin muffinsFriday, September 27, 2013
Kids in the Kitchen
With this fall weather, I start dreaming of baking with pumpkins and apples. To cap off last weekend's fun, my daughter put on her fanciest dress and insisted on baking. Love her!
I searched my pantry and saw a can of pure pumpkin. Here is one of many fall-inspired recipes to come - a healthy pumpkin muffin with chocolate chips, no butter, no oil, low sugar and baked with applesauce, Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour.
Skinny Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Yields 10-12 muffins
- ¾ can of 15-ounce pure pumpkin
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup applesauce
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp. nutmeg
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients into one bowl.
Stir until smooth.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until you stick a fork through the middle of one muffin and it comes out clean.
