  • 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions

  2. Line a muffin pan with 12 cupcake liners or spray the muffin pan with a baking spray so the muffins easily release from the pan.

  5. Mix completely with a spatula until all ingredients are combined.

  8. Bake muffins for 25 minutes, test with a toothpick and bake until it comes out clean.
  9. Allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then remove from the pan.
Notes
I've added in 1/2 cup shaved coconut and 1/2 cup chopped pecans without altering the recipe and they baked up beautifully. I also topped each muffin with a few pieces so they stuck out on top. (so allow 3/4 cup of each) add these additions when you mix in the pumpkin.
