  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp clove
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cinnamon Sugar Topping (optional)

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a muffin tin cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, spices and salt.
  • In a bowl combine pumpkin puree with both sugars, mixing to combine.
  • Add apple sauce, oil and vanilla extract and stir.
  • Add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a uniform batter has formed.
  • DO NOT over-mix or muffins will have a gummy texture.
  • Fill muffin molds.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Allow time to cool.
  • Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
  • I sprinkle each muffin before serving, otherwise the sugar can melt.
