Notes

Recipe Note: This recipe used to use dates. I have removed them because I find the texture is better with honey. This recipe also used to have collagen. You can add 1/4 cup collagen peptides to this recipe if you would like.
Substitutions for healthy pumpkin muffins:
There are A LOT of ways to customize these healthy pumpkin muffins to your taste buds/dietary needs. Here are a few:
  • Milk: You can use any milk you like in this recipe. Dairy or non dairy (almond, soy, oat) will all work
  • Oats: You can sub old fashioned rolled oats for 2 cups of oat flour.
  • Sweetener: You can sub maple syrup for the honey in this recipe.
  • Add ins: I like adding chocolate chips. Nuts, dried cranberries, or seeds are also delicious
  • Spices: You can use 3.5 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice in these muffins. If you do not have nutmeg or cloves, just add a little bit more cinnamon/ginger.
  • Vegan: I have not tried making these muffins vegan, but you might be able to substitute the eggs with flax eggs. You can substitute maple syrup for honey.
  • WW Freestyle Note: Calculations were done using Lily's Chocolate Chips. You can probably sub sugar free syrup for honey to save points (honey accounts for 2SP per muffin).
  • Blender: If you don't have a blender, you can make these in a mixing bowl. I'd recommend using oat flour. You can't use whole oats to make this recipe, they will not cook.
