pumpkin muffins

the love for pumpkin continues.....

while searching for recipes for pumpkin muffins, i came across one from family fresh cooking, they looked irresistible! had to make them. i changed a few things in the original recipe, so here's how i made them:

yummy pumpkin muffins

1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup nut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup so delicious coconut milk
1/2 cup raw turbinado sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree

preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
grease a muffin tin, or line with paper liners.
in a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt, and spices.
in a medium mixing bowl, add the nut butter, vanilla, coconut milk, sugar, and pumpkin and mix well. pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a spoon until just combined.
pour into muffin tins. bake for 25 minutes.
this recipe made me 11 muffins.

they will be moist.
they will not be too sweet.
they will be perfect.
enjoy that pumpkin!

some favorite things

endangered species chocolate is my favorite chocolate. they make some yummy flavors. i like their raspberry, cranberry with almond, and mint the most. not only does it all taste amaaaazing, but they are a really good-hearted company to buy from.

i scored a bag of these on sale for $2.99, an after-halloween special ;D

some of their chocolate is vegan and some is not, so make sure to check the ingredients.

roasted squash. doesn't really need an explanation about why it's so good:

large cans of chickpeas. also doesn't need explanation :)

i don't know why but i can't seem to cook them right when i buy them dry. i really wanted it to work since i've heard it's cheaper than buying cans all the time. but there's just something so nice about opening a new can of chickpeas.....

i was so excited when i spotted this! i knew it was coming and was surprised to find it so soon. it tastes great! and i'm glad that there is another option out there other than soy. so delicious, you have made me sooo happy!

pumpkin muffins: tasty, moist, and not too sweet. recipe to come soon!

happy monday!
