Maple Pumpkin Nut Muffins

maple pumpkin nut muffin recipe #fall #maple #pumpkin #muffinsIt sure does not feel like fall here in Florida, but I am craving fall foods.

These maple pumpkin nut muffins are a delicious first peak into those fall flavors. The muffins are easy to make, “relatively” healthy and full of nutty pumpkin flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 cup ap flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 15oz (1 can) pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

 

Preheat the over to 375

In one bowl combine dry ingredients; whole wheat flour, ap flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, chia seeds.

In a separate bowl mix together the sugar and all the wet ingredients. Blend well.

Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

Fold in almonds.

Grease your cupcake tins with oil. Evenly scoop batter directly into your tins.

Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is spongey and springs back to touch.

For the glaze mix together sugar and maple syrup, lightly drizzle over muffins. You do not need much.

Happy fall everyone! Bring on the cinnamon and sugar, warm colors and sweatpants… wait, I live in Florida, it’s too hot for sweatpants.
