    WHOLE WHEAT PUMPKIN MUFFINS.


This is a very tasty   savoury  muffins. These too  is an  adaptation  from  the  blog cookieandkate. The  main change I  have  made is  that  of the sweetner .The original recipe uses honey but according to our knowledge honey cant be heated so  I used sugar.Here i used home made pumpkin puree.I made it by pureeing pressure cooked  pumpkin.To make the pumpkin puree I used almost 250 grams ripe pumpkin.Peel it and dice it.Pressure cook with little water for 3 or 4 whistles.Cool it,puree in a blender and use it.






INGREDIENTS
  • ⅓  cup coconut oil 
  • 1  cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1  cup pumpkin purée
  • ¼  cup milk 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice or cloves
  • 1¾ cups whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup old-fashioned oats, plus more for sprinkling on top
Method
  1. Preheat oven to  180 degree C...and keep muffin tins ready lined with muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the oil and sugar together with a whisk. Add eggs, and beat well. Mix in the pumpkin purée and milk, followed by the baking soda, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice or cloves.
  3. Add the flour and oats to the bowl and mix with a large spoon, just until combined. If you’d like to add any additional mix-ins, like nuts, chocolate or dried fruit, fold them in now.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups. For these muffins, it’s ok to fill the cups a little higher than you normally would. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with a small amount of oats, followed by a sprinkle of cinnamon. Bake muffins for 20 to 23 minutes until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.Baking time may vary according to ovens.
  5. Place the muffin tin on a cooling rack. These muffins are delicate until they cool down . so it’s best to wait until they have cooled down to remove them from the tin. You might need to run a knife along the outer edge of the muffins to loosen them.
