Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Like many others right now, I am obsessing over all things Pumpkin, so I decided to try a few pumpkin spice muffin recipes. This one is hands down my favourite, and I have made it a few times with many different versions. 

Below is a way to make this recipe healthy, or not so healthy – as well as the option to add cream cheese centres! (Pictured above are the cream cheese centre version)

Definitely worth a try this Fall, especially for Thanksgiving weekend breakfast! 

Takes 35, serves 12.


  • 1 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour*
  • 1 cup of cane sugar**
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar***
  • 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. of ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Start by adding the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, group cloves and nutmeg into a bowl. Stir it together.
  3. In another bowl, melt the coconut oil, add the pumpkin puree, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix together well.
  4. Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir well.
  5. Divide equally into 12 grease or lined muffin tins. 
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Use a toothpick to stick into the centre of the muffins, if the toothpick comes out clean, they are ready! If not, put them back in for a few more minutes.
  7. Let the muffins cool a little bit before enjoying!

As I am obsessed with these muffins, I have tried a few variations. The healthiest version I omit the brown sugar, there is a slight change in the appearance of the muffins, I would maybe describe them as being less plump and round!? They still taste great, but if you aren’t worried about making them healthy, user white flour, granulated sugar and add the brown sugar! I have not tried subbing the coconut oil for regular oil, I am sure it works but please let me know if you try it! ALSO, sometimes I add some cream cheese to the middle, I just put about 2 tsp. of cream cheese in the centre before baking, and cover it with muffin mixture.

*You can also use regular white flour 

** You can also use regular granulated sugar

*** You can omit the brown sugar. I have made them with and without the brown sugar, both are great, obviously the sweeter the better, but if you are trying to keep it on the healthier side, then you should omit!

Above is the “healthier” version of these muffins!
