Pumpkin Muffins

My cute little pumpkin is no longer a cute little pumpkin.

I made a pumpkin puree and from that made some pumpkin muffins.

Pumpkin Muffins! Yum Yum!
Pumpkin Muffins

2 cups sugar pumpkin puree
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2/3 cup light olive oil
2 eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together 2 cups pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, vanilla and eggs. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Eat and Enjoy!
