Nothing says fall like the spice trinity of pumpkin, nutmeg and cloves.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

2 cup(s)

baking powder

1 Tbsp

table salt

1 tsp

baking soda

1 tsp

ground cloves

½ tsp

ground cinnamon

1 tsp

ground nutmeg

1 tsp

unsweetened applesauce

cup(s)

canned pumpkin

1 cup(s)

sugar

cup(s)

regular liquid egg substitute

½ cup(s)

fat free skim milk

cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray. Line with cupcake wrappers if desired.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt , baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  3. Combine applesauce, pumpkin, sugar, egg substitute and milk in a medium bowl; mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add applesauce mixture to flour mixture and mix until completely incorporated.
  5. Pour batter into muffin tins so each hole is about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Yields 1 muffin per serving.

Notes

We use both cooking spray and muffin wrappers to prevent any batter from sticking to the top of the pan but you can use a nonstick pan instead, if you prefer.
