Ingredients

Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour see note 1
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour see note 1
  • 1/2 cup sugar * I used Diamond sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg see note 2
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Pumpkin Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 count muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the whole wheat flour, white flour, and sugar. 
  • Mix into the flour mixture the baking soda, baking powder, salt, ground allspice, ground cloves, and ground ginger. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine pumpkin puree, egg, Greek yogurt, water, canola oil. 
  • Fold the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
  • Divide the pumpkin evenly into the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean from center of muffin. Let muffins cool a bit before serving.

Notes

Note 1: I use a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. You can use all of either flour for similar results. I prefer a combo of the flour. 
Note 2: I love freshly grated nutmeg. You can use ground nutmeg, just use a pinch more as the flavor is not as strong as freshly grated nutmeg.
