So we needed muffins for supper. I decided to make pumpkin muffins. (We have lots of pumpkin, and it doesn't have to be Thanksgiving for pumpkin!)
Lillian helped me out with this recipe. =D The other kiddos were watching Little House on the Prairie.
I changed a few things from the original recipe....lol
It really called for 1/2 water, but why add water to a recipe? And I happened to have a very ripe banana..why waste it? Ok so it made the muffins taste a little like banana. And they I think they would have been good with a little more oil. But you can do whatever you want ;)
Pumpkin Spice Muffins
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1-15 oz can pumpkin
1 ripe banana
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (If you don't have it, just use a little extra of the other spices)
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin pan or use paper liners.
Mix sugar, oil, eggs, banana and pumpkin. In separate bowl mix together the baking flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt. Add wet mixture and stir in coconut. (Walnuts, pecans, and chocolate chips are also good in these muffins. I added walnuts to just a few of mine)
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
