Pumpkin Date Walnut Muffins

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in so long! I was really busy with school this week (I had a big project due and I was studying for finals) so I didn’t get to post anything. This week I’ll be able to post more.

I still had some homemade Pumpkin Puree in my freezer from about a month ago that I needed to use up. I love muffins, so I decided to make some. This recipe is based off the Pumpkin Spice Muffins recipe in the Canadian Living Baking Book. Here are the ingredients I used:

  1. 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour (I used some whole wheat flour too but the muffins were a little dry. So I would suggest using white flour.)
  2. 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (from the bulk bin)
  3. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp cinnamon
  5. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  6. 1/2 tsp salt
  7. 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  8. 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  9. 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  10. 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (pecans would be good too)
  11. 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates (Yes, they are in a plastic tub. I bought them before I started the blog, and I needed to use them up. I found them in bulk at a different store.)
  12. 2 eggs
  13. 3/4 cup Pumpkin Puree
  14. 1/4 cup melted butter
  15. 1 tsp vanilla

Grease a muffin tin. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg in a bowl.

Add walnuts and dates. Stir.

Whisk together eggs, Pumpkin Puree, butter, and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients, and stir to combine.

Spoon batter into muffin tin.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Enjoy! 🙂
