Recipe For Maple Pumpkin Muffins


I opened one of those big cans of pumpkin to make a double batch of pumpkin apple muffins and then had an extra cup of pumpkin to play with. I read a few recipes, but they didn’t strike a chord. I wanted to add oatmeal, but didn’t make it work. Instead I made a triple batch of instant oatmeal packets. So anyway, here is the result of some fiddling and combining. These aren’t too sweet and taste delicious warm with a dab of butter.

These are not your “are these a cupcake?” muffins. They are very hearty and would work as an accompaniment to a big breakfast or even dinner. Of course, they could stand alone, too. My family had no trouble gobbling them up as snacks.
