Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup pepitas, optional

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with liners and set aside. I like to very lightly spray the inside of the liners to ensure that it does not stick. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, light brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk to break up any clumps. 

  3. Make a well in the center and add your wet ingredients. Eggs, pumpkin, oil, honey, and vanilla extract. Stir with a wooden spoon or a spatula just until it's combined and no flour pockets remain. 

  4. Scoop batter into muffins tins, about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the tops with pepitas if wanted. 

  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. These muffins dome really nicely and they will look done. Mine are perfect at 16 minutes. 

  6. Let cool in the muffin tins for 5 minutes and then remove the muffins to a cooling rack. Eat warm or at room tmeperature. Store leftovers inside a Ziploc bag. The bag keeps them nice and moist!

Recipe Notes

Make sure you are using the canned pure pumpkin (like Libby's). They also make a pumpkin pie filling that looks similar. Don't get that one. You want the pure 100% pumpkin.
