Pumpkin Muffins

You know me and pumpkin - especially this time of year! I always have a can on hand and am ready to use it as the need arises! I found this recipes while paging through my family fun magazine and had to try it. The kids really enjoy muffins for breakfast and I enjoy coming up with a healthier alternative to some of the boxed cereals that I usually have on hand! :)

Pumpkin Muffins
(recipe found in Family Fun)

1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
1/3 cup oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat the oven to 350 and grease the bottom only of 12 muffin cups. I a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs, vanilla and brown sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until just combined. Pour batter into muffin cups and bake until muffins are slightly puffed and golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack.
