Pumpkin Spice Muffins


Please excuse my brevity this morning, I spent most of last night running through a corn maze trying to escape a chainsaw wielding zombie, got home around 2am, and then got up at 6am to drive someone to the airport. My first two cups of coffee were enough to get me back home safely after a drive to San Francisco and through my mini-baking sesh, but I can feel myself slowing down. A long nap is in order before football starts. :)

How do some fall-flavored superfood based muffins sound? 

Pumpkin Spice Muffins (serves 6)

1 C cooked quinoa
1/3 C Bob's Red Mill Oat Flour
2/3 C Libby's Pure Pumpkin (canned)
1/3 C Sweetened Flaked Coconut
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 T Pumpkin Butter

Preheat your oven to 350ºF
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, no particular order :D
Divide evenly between lined cups
Bake for 10 min for "gooier" muffins, 12-15 for more well done muffins
