Whole Wheat Pumpkin Applesauce Muffins

4 years ago

I find myself stocking up on cans of pumpkin every time I go to the store and then stare aimlessly in my pantry wondering what I can use them for. It doesn't take me long before I am making a batch of pumpkin scones, or pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, or adding pumpkin into a bowl of oatmeal or making a smoothie. Often times this leaves me with half a can of pumpkin in the refrigerator that will soon go to waste if I don't find another use for it. The horror! This is how I found myself searching the internet the other morning for these wonderfully delicous yet healthy muffins. Here is a recipe to try next time you find yourself with leftover pumpkin.
