Baking with Dorie: Pumpkin Muffins

I feel like such a good girl eating these. They are soooo healthy-tasting!!

They aren't sweet at all, in fact you can barely taste the sugar. They are mild-tasting, sweet-spice flavored, good old-fashioned muffins.

This week's Baking with Dorie (BWD) recipe was chosen by Elizabeth of Gluten-Free Baking. Elizabeth did her's gluten-free, so if you're looking for the recipe, head over to Chaya's blog at My Sweet and Savory or Page 13 of Baking from my home to yours by Dorie Greenspan.

Honestly, these are about the healthiest thing I've ever baked!! And I love the crunch from the sunflower seed sprinkles.

I had some with some jam as per the serving suggestion by Dorie. Even then it still tasted healthy!! Thanks, Elizabeth!! ;-)

In two week's time, we're baking My Fav Pecan Pie chosen by yours truly!! If you'd like to join us, send an email to needfulthings at ymail dot com.
