milk free, egg free (SUPER DELICIOUS) pumpkin muffins

Okay.  You have got to make these muffins.  They are super delicious, allergen friendly and super easy.  Did I mention delicious?  Don't count them out because they are egg free (I'm looking at you, Mom) because they are seriously good, with a light and tender crumb.  I actually made my mom mad on Sunday because I couldn't shut up about how delicious they were and she didn't have any.  (sorry, Mom.)

(I adapted this recipe slightly from the vegan goldmine, Vegan with a Vengeance.)



Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour  (can use all all-purpose if that's what you've got)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt  (again, use table salt if it's all you've bot)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup canned 100% pumpkin (no pie mix)
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Optional topping will require:  1/2 cup toasted pecans mixed with 1/4 c sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon  (see below)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Lightly grease your muffin tins or line with paper liners and then spray with non-stick cooking spray.  (I got 17 smallish muffins...make them bigger and plan on about a dozen.)  Sift together flours, sugars, baking powder, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, soy milk, oil, and syrup. Combine wet and dry and mix.
Fill the muffin cups 1/2 to 2/3 full, sprinkle with pecan/cinnamon & sugar mixture (or don't and regret it the rest of your life.  or at least the rest of your day.) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

(over the) Topping:  
While your oven is heating, throw about 1/2 cup of pecans on a cookie sheet and toast them for a few minutes, just until aromatic.  When cooled, crush them and combine with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.  Sprinkle over muffins before baking.  yum.
