The "Oh Crap, I don't have any eggs!" Pumpkin Muffins
It's that time of year,
when all I crave are delicious, home baked, pumpkin treats!
Well I decided last week that I NEEDED to make some pumpkin muffins,
because I had a leftover half a can of pumpkin sitting in my fridge, and that just didn't seem right,
and I had the perfect amount of nap-time for getting something in the oven.
But when I started digging for ingredients I discovered there were no eggs!
Thankfully, Google and a Vegan Pumpkin Muffin recipe from Food.com came to the rescue.
The muffins I made weren't vegan because I only had 2% milk and greek yogurt,
but they still came out fantastic.
The little man loved them, the mr man loved them, and I got my pumpkin craving satisfied.
Vegan Pumpkin Muffins
(my notes and substitutions in italics)
1 3/4 cups flour (I used 1 cup white flour, 3/4 cup wheat flour)
1 1/4 cups sugar (I used 1 cup packed brown sugar)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
(I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix instead of all the spices below,
but probably could have used a little more)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup pumpkin puree (fresh or from a can) (I definitely used from a can)
1 tablespoon soy yogurt (I used plain greek yogurt)
1/2 cup soymilk (I used 2% milk)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons molasses (Left this out since I used brown sugar and didn't have any molasses)
1 - Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 - Grease muffin tins with vegetable shortening or spray on oil. (I used paper liners)
3 - Sift together dry ingredients (flour through cloves).
4 - In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (pumpkin through molasses).
5 - Pour wet into dry and combine.
6 - Fill muffin tins 2/3 of the way.
7 - Bake for 27-30 minutes, till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Dang, now after looking at these pictures for so long, I think I need to make some more!
Have you baked any delicious fall treats yet?
I could always use a new treat to try!
