Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins – Ingredients
There’s so much fall flavor in each bite of today’s mini muffins. Here’s what you need:
Whole Wheat Flour: We use wholesome and hearty whole wheat flour as the base of these muffins.
Baking Powder & Baking Soda: These leaveners help the muffins rise.
Cinnamon & nutmeg Spice: I like to use a blend of these cozy spices for mega fall flavor.
Eggs: Eggs add moisture and bind the ingredients together.
Sugar: A little sugar sweetens these muffins.
Pumpkin: Pumpkin adds flavor and incredible moisture. Make sure to use real pumpkin puree .
Butter: A touch of melted butter helps make the muffins taste good– no rubbery or dry muffins today. We use just enough butter to give the muffins a rich, tender texture but still keep them on the lighter side. Don’t leave it out!
Milk: Milk adds moisture.
Chocolate Chips: Mini chocolate chips are best. You get many more in each muffin! Use any leftover in mini chocolate chip muffins.
