Two-Bite Pumpkin Muffins

Its not really the season for pumpkin but this recipe is one I have had in my recipe box for years and I make it all year long. It has been a staple in our house that we love – however, I actually haven’t made it in AGES because the amount of sugar and oil in this recipe is cray-cray! So today I wanted a somewhat healthy dessert (since baby girl doesn’t seem to like chocolate #howisshemine) and I decided to tweak this recipe to make it something that I can make on a regular basis again without cringing over the ingredients.

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Mix honey, egg, pumpkin and 1/4 cup applesauce.

  3. Add remaining 1/2 cup of applesauce and mix.

Swapping sugar for honey and oil for applesauce is so easy to do and no one even noticed a difference in the muffins #sneakymomwin Do you have any recipe swaps that your family has no idea about? I’d love to hear about them!
