6 Calorie Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Posted Aug 01 2012 12:00am

I love sweets! Despite being on a fitness plan that does involve counting calories, I find ways to work in bready sweets. Deprivation is no way to go!
One method I use is omitting sugar and replacing flour with a low-carb baking mix. 
I made the pumpkin bread recipe from Happy Herbivore, omitted the sugar, and used mini muffin cups rather than a loaf pan. This yielded 50 mini muffins at only 6 calories apiece- awesome! Not terribly sweet, but hits the spot perfectly for me. 

Here's the recipe with my changes:

  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk ( I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • ¼ tsp lemon juice
  • 15 ounces pumpkin
  • 1 cup brown sugar (I omitted)
  • 2 tbsp  (I used agave nectar)
  • 1 tsp 
  • 2 tbsp 
  • 2 cups  (I used Bob's Red Mill low carb baking mix)
  • 1 tsp 
  • ½ tsp 
  • Instructions Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray a standard bread pan. Whisk non-dairy milk and lemon juice together until bubbly and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, cream pumpkin, nectar, and extract together. In a large bowl, whisk pumpkin pie spice, flour, baking soda and baking powder together. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and stir until just combined.  Makes 50 mini muffins, 6 calories each :)
