Recipe Details
Ingredients
  • 1 spray(s) cooking spray
  • 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup(s) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup(s) canned pumpkin
  • 2/3 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) regular liquid egg substitute
  • 2/3 cup(s) fat free skim milk
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.
