Sunflower Pumpkin Muffins

One of my graphic designers, Audrey, brought in a batch of pumpkin muffins to share with the studio this morning. They were delicious and put me in the mood for all of the wonderful pumpkin treats that are traditionally shared this month as we approach Thanksgiving. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin rolls… I could go on and on!Here is the recipe for the muffins to try for yourself:

1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. sugar1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon1 egg, beaten
1 c. skim milk
2 tbsp. oil
1/2 can pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Sift together the dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl combine the egg, milk, oil and pumpkin. Pour into flour mixture slowly and stir until moistened. Then stir in the sunflower seeds, careful not to overmix. Spray muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. This recipe makes 12.

Enjoy and I invite you to please share your own pumpkin recipes with us!
