  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup maple syrup

  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until incorporated. Do not overmix.
  • Fill the muffin liners ¾ full with batter. Place in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until the internal temperature reads 200 degrees.
