With more potassium than a banana, a full day’s worth of vitamins A and C (for kids), 3 grams of fiber, and compounds that lower “bad’ (LDL) cholesterol, it’s no wonder that the mighty pumpkin is considered the original superfood. These muffins are really easy to make (my five year old did 90% of the work today), super tasty, and healthy, too! 


1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1 Tbsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp pumpkin spice

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup coconut oil, liquified

1 cup dark chocolate chunks

2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, milk, oil and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry ones and mix until smooth. Add chocolate chunks. Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until a toothpick or fork inserted in the center comes out dry. Makes 12 servings.
