Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

Fancy an alternative “treat” to bake for the family that’s actually good for the children this halloween ?

Well look no further! These pretty healthy pumpkin muffins are a perfect bake this season for using up all that left over pumpkin after carving.

Ingredients :

6oz (175g) self raising flour

2oz (50g) soft margarine

2oz (50g) Caster sugar

2 eggs

4 tbsp milk ( I used coconut milk)

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

4 oz (125g) pumpkin puree

Pumpkin seeds & crushed sugar cubes or granulated to decorate.

Method :

1. Pre-heat oven to 200Β°c, grease or use paper cases in your bun/ muffin tray.

2. Place flour in a bowl, mash in margarine with a fork. Stir in sugar, eggs, milk & essence and beat to a smooth consistency. Gently stir in the puree to make a marbled effect.

3. Spoon mix equally into cases. Sprinkle the tops with sugar and pumpkin seeds then bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden.

The kids will never know these treats are actually full of goodness instead of just sugar and e numbers! Trick them at breakfast time to get the halloween party started right!

Happy Halloween πŸŽƒ
