Healthy muffins to whip up with the kids this weekend

Fall is officially here and now it is time to start baking with pumpkins. Hooray!

This recipe is one of my family’s fall favorites. Everyone in your family will have fun making and eating these healthy and easy pumpkin muffins.

There is no butter, no oil, and low sugar. What more could a parent ask for? Instead of butter and oil, I substituted in good-for-you ingredients — applesauce, Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour.

I bet your family falls in love with these muffins too!
