Healthy Pumpkin Muffins...just don't ask me for the recipe- '31 days'- day 25

Breakfast on the run should be a healthy smoothie or a healthy muffin, no? Breakfast is always rushed here, but I usually find myself cooking eggs or oatmeal which is not very portable if one needs to get into the van to make it to work or kindergarten on time. I decided to make some muffins.
I looked around for a recipe, but I didn't find anything with my exact ingredients that I was trying to use up, so I made up my own. This is basically it, but don't take my exact word for it:

one large can of pumpkin puree
six eggs
one cup of honey
half cup of buttermilk
two tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice
one package of Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free pizza crust mix (basically rice flour)
two cups of oat bran
two teaspoons baking powder with dash of salt
No added fat is needed; the eggs contribute enough- I baked each batch (first with chocolate chips, the next two with dried cranberries) for 22 minutes at 350. Next time, I will bake it at 375 for a shorter period for, hopefully, a better rise. They were pretty good!
Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million, count half dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail. ~ Henry D. Thoreau

  1. Yummy. I would like a taste and see if they are as good as they look. Autumn is the time to break out the pumpkin and thanks for the push.
