Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

1 1/2 cups whole spelt flour

1 T. pumpkin pie spice blend

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup melted butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with liners and set aside.
  2. Using a whisk or fork mix together the flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Make a well (hole) in the center of the flour mixture and drop in the eggs, honey, and melted butter. Mix together until well combined. Fold in the pumpkin puree. Do not overmix.
  4. Pour the batter into the muffin pan so itโ€™s evenly distributed. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes clean, about 18 โ€“ 20 minutes. Store at room temperature or freeze.

      Hi Nancy! I’ve made them with whole wheat flour and they turned out great. I haven’t tried almond flour, but I would imagine that it would be fine. Try it and let me know how they turn out! ๐Ÿ˜€
