Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins


I think I am finally getting the hang of this.  I love using coconut flour.  It is high in fiber and protein and helps lower points plus values in recipes.  I love using almond flour - but the points are sooo high.  In baking, I am trying to use more coconut flour.  I can eat a muffin that is 2-3 points plus, but 5 pp+ for the same size muffin is too expensive in my world. 
 
The original recipe said that canned pumpkin would not work.  However, I adjusted a few things and omitted a few things to get the ratio to turn out right using canned pumpkin. This is a recipe that you need to "pulse" with your food processor or blender.  It does make a difference. 
 
I had these cooling on the counter when Daniel work up this morning.  He came into the computer room with a great big smile and a thumbs up.  I didn't even need to ask if they were good.
