It’s the first day of Fall, and I am now officially in my “happy place”. I decided to start it off by making a pumpkin recipe with my sweet 4 year old daughter. She loves to help her mommy, such a lucky one I am.
I came across this yummy looking recipe from Inside BruCrew Life and had to give it a try. I’m a crazy lover of pumpkin… I even dedicated an entire Pinterest Board to All Things Pumpkin. Can you say YUM-O? These little muffins hit the mark – super pumpkiny (is that a word?) and dense, plus a bit sweet with the cinnamon sugar glaze on top. I have about a half can of pumpkin left…. what shall I make next? I can’t wait to do some more baking. Enjoy!
Mini Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
For the Muffins:
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- In a mixing bowl, beat the oil, brown sugar, applesauce, vanilla, and pumpkin until creamy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly add to the pumpkin mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
- Spray a mini muffin pan with non stick spray. Fill the cavities almost full. Bake at 350* for 10-12 minutes. Let cool 2-3 minutes in the pan. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Stir together the powdered sugar, milk, and cinnamon. Dip the tops of the muffins in the glaze and let set. Makes 24 mini muffins.
