Good for you ingredients

Pumpkin (100% Pure Pumpkin - Not Pumpkin Pie Filling )

Pumpkin contains 7 grams of fiber per one-cup serving. Fiber is beneficial for removing cholesterol from the body, keeping blood sugars from spiking and helping regulate bowel habits. Pumpkin also offers vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, and folate…all of which strengthen your immune system, making them a perfect fall & winter muffin. Because they’re rich in vitamin A and carotenoids (that give it their orange color), pumpkin can also lower your risk for certain types of cancer, including prostate, throat, pancreatic stomach, breast and lung cancer.

How to store leftovers

  • To store:  Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Eat within 2 days or refrigerate or freeze.  I kept these muffins in the refrigerator for a week and they stayed moist.
  • To freeze:  Freeze in a well sealed container.  I recommend eating within 1-2 months. Once thawed, I recommend eating and not refreezing.
  • To reheat:  Bring to room temperature or a quick, 30 second zap in the microwave will do.
