pumpkin cranberry supremely healthy seeded muffin

I made these four times trying to get the recipe as healthy as possible while still remaining tasty. I like the latest version quite a bit. I had some toasted today with tofutti cream cheese.

 

Here is my recipe:

Mix the dry ingredients and te wet seperately and then stir together (not too much stirring!)

 

Preheat to 400degrees

 

1 1/2 c. wheat flour (I use the wheat flour that is specially ground for baking pastries)

 

1/2 c. brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

a sprinkle of ground cloves

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. baking soda

pinch of salt

1/2 c. ground flaxseed

stir in liberal amounts of dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds

 

wet:

1 egg

1 c. buttermilk

1 c. pureed pumpkin

1 tBsp. vanilla extract

1 tBsp. canola oil

 

fill up some muffin tins and garnish with cranberries and pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar for sparkle.

 

Don't be tempted to reduce the oil and replace it with applesauce. I tried that.

 

Keep an eye on them. I don't remember how long they baked for. Maybe 20 min.?

 

I'd be very interested to hear feedback if someone trys these. Any helpful suggestions or substitutions are more than welcome.

    Thank you! I really like the color of these muffins. Nice orange-y batter with green seeds and red berries. I only did that flower shape on a few and then got bored though :).
