Now that pumpkin season is here, I am not holding back! Pumpkin is one of my favorite ingredients to use all year round but I love when fall hits and everyone rallies.

Whether it’s stirred into oatmeal, blended into a smoothie, mixed into waffles or used in muffins like I am here, no one complains about pumpkin season!

The secret to these moist and fluffy pumpkin muffins is the combination of pure pumpkin, whole wheat pastry flour and creamy plain yogurt.

When combined, the end result is always a perfectly dense and light muffin.

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and spray two muffin pans with cooking spray or line with muffin tins.
  • In a stand mixer, gently mix together dry ingredients: flour through cloves.
    Liz Using Stand Mixer
  • With the stand mixer beating on low speed, carefully add in all of the wet ingredients, working one at a time, starting with the pure pumpkin. Once all ingredients have been added, beat for 20 seconds to incorporate, carefully scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed (with mixer turned off when needed.) 
  • Using a large cookie scoop, carefully scoop batter into muffin pans. You should have enough to fill two dozen. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from muffin pan to cool completely.

    Hello Liz,
    This sounds like a great recipe, Will organic all-purpose or just whole wheat flours work?
