Mini Pumpkin Muffins > Regular Pumpkin Muffins

Yes, you read correctly- I feel that mini pumpkin muffins are greater than regular pumpkin muffins. Why you may ask? The answer is quite simple because I get to eat MANY more MINI muffins for the same amount of time preparing the batter! I know, I know I should write a book on this stuff. HA! The simple little pleasures in life! Quite a while back I stumbled across a recipe over at Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life . Banana Pumpkin Raison BreadPumpkin + Banana = Yes, please! 

The making of something good!

Pumpkin Banana Bread Muffins

Based off of Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life –she made bread but I’m obsessed with bite sized things. It’s kind of my thing- like sprinkles.

  • 3 ripe bananas
  •  2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 3 TBSP Molasses
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350° Grease muffin tins.

First, in a large bowl, mash the bananas. Then add all other wet ingredient to the large bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients; sugar through cinnamon.  Once your dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add them  to the wet ingredients and combine wet + dry. Finally, fold in the raisons.  Bake at 350* till you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. I baked for about 10-15 minutes. 🙂  Mine were *very* mini so just watch them close on the baking time!

The deliciousness!

I didn’t want the larger muffins to feel excluded so I included them in the photos. However, I strongly believe that mini muffs are about a million times the fun as regular sized muffins! 🙂 They are just cuter and more fun to eat! Not to mention- you can eat more! I love logic!

Delightfully delicious!

You could totally bake bread like Courtney did but I’m a fan of the mini things in life. I decided to put these fall muffins on my summer plate to remind me of brighter days where I wasn’t living inside a school building! The days where I was soaking up theCalifornia sunshine! 🙂 The best of fall and summer right here! Enjoy!

QUESTION: Do you prefer mini or regular sized muffins when you bake?!
