It’s pumpkin season! That means pumpkin EVERYTHING. My toddler loves muffins and I love pumpkin so I thought I would combine the two. It was my turn to bring snack for Bee’s preschool last week (first time!) so I decided to make those kids like pumpkin by making pumpkin muffins. I added some chocolate chips to them to bribe them as well. I took my banana muffins and adapted it for the pumpkin.
- •1/2 c of coconut oil or butter softened or melted
- 1 c pumpkin
- •1 egg
- •1/2 c sugar
- •1½ c flour
- •1 tsp baking soda
- •1 tsp baking powder
- •1/2 tsp salt
- •1/2 c chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 and get toddler to put muffin liners in the muffin tin while you get out the ingredients.
- Combine pumpkin, coconut oil/butter and egg in kitchen aid mixer and blend it up. While that is mixing get toddler to help you combine the rest of the ingredients in another bowl except the filling. Blend it up and then add to the wet ingredients. Mix that up again and then add ½ c of chocolate chips.
- Spoon the mixture into your muffin tin (maybe without toddlers help!) and bake for 20 minutes!
The muffins were a success! Bee’s class of preschool classmates actually ate the muffins. I was so excited!
