Pumpkin Muffins

Fall was over way too fast. We already have snow and I don’t like it. I am not ready for it. Problem is that snow and winter are way too long in Calgary. Snow is fine in December and should be gone by February, right?


So while we still had sunshine and mild weather I got the canned pumpkin out. First I made pumpkin snickerdoodle bars and they were a disaster. My husband was so looking forward to haven them…

Next thing on my to do list were these pumpkin muffins.

Much better!

This Monday Sandra chose the recipe for our Food Matters Project. Thank goodness I had this one up my sleeve because we are packing up. Last week in the rental place yay!

Pumpkin Muffins

Adapted from the cookbook healthy meals for two and The Food Matters Project

1 1/2 cups oat flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup lightly packed dark sugar

1 tbsp Saran baking powder

1/2 tsp Saigon cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1 egg

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup pumpkin purée

1/4 grape seed oil

This is really easy. All you have to do is mix the ingredients but don’t over mix. Fill 12 muffin molds. Then you bake them for 20 min. at 200C.

Even my baby girl could not resist!

    These muffins look awesome! I love the baking molds and the little hand… too cute.
    Most people think of sunshine all year around, pleasant temperatures, and long beaches when I mention that I live in California. But reality is that I live in the mountains. Now the perfect weather scenario might be true for Southern California but here in the mountains the winter is harsh and looong. I very much dislike this. Winter comes too early and lasts too long and then there is no spring or fall. Instead the summer comes almost right away with 40 degrees Celsius… I agree with you that a long winter is just miserable. I miss the German weather… 😛 Maybe it rains a lot at times but this weather here isn’t fun.
    How is your Umzug going? Hope it’s going well.
