'Tis the season for all things Maple! And to celebrate we'll be cooking with the sweet stuff and posting our results and recipes here for everyone to enjoy. We're starting out with muffins since the kiddos are home for Spring Break - a perfect chance for them to help out in the kitchen and enjoy the fruits of their labor!
Healthy Maple Glazed Pumpkin Muffins
This one was just too easy. I found the recipe for these glorious muffins and didn't mess with it a bit. OK, well I did throw some chopped pecans in there just because they were sitting in a jar on my counter when i was mixing up the batter. But they already had a good dose of whole wheat flour in them, plus Maple syrup in both the muffin and the glaze. Not only that, but I've been experimenting with baking with olive oil recently and, wouldn't you know... these are made with olive oil! A woman after my own heart.
My glaze didn't come out quite like Lindsay's from Pinch of Yum (blog linked below), but these were good enough to try again. And again. Until I get it right. And believe me, no one turned down the ones I made today!
