Pumpkin Cocoa Spiced Muffins

Pumpkin Cocoa Spiced Muffins 2

So, my dessert re-vamp week was so fun that I kept going…yep, more healthy dessert recipes are coming! These muffins are super yummy! I titled them “muffins” but they are really a cross between a muffin and a cupcake. Have you tried SuperSeedz?!! I am completely addicted! I LOVE the Double Dark Chocolate variety so much that I have to hide them from myself so I don’t eat the whole bag! I decided to incorporate these delicious seeds into this dessert muffin 2 ways – in the batter and as a finished topping. SO GOOD! These dessert muffins are moist, cocoalicious, and have just the right textural crunch. Now, you can slather these dessert muffins with this frosting or you can use a jarred chocolate nut butter of choice – either is super delicious! These dessert muffins are full of antioxidants, which makes me feel good about eating them. Yay for healthy desserts! (and double YAY for SuperSeedz!!!)

Pumpkin Cocoa Spiced Muffins 4

1 1/4 cups gluten-free flour blend
1 cup ground SuperSeedz
1 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin pan with paper liners. Sift together flour, ground Superseedz, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, applesauce, coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Add flour mixture and stir until well blended. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin pan. I use a small cookie scoop to make sure the batter was evenly distributed. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then place on a cooling rack to cool completely. Once cooled, slather the muffins with peanut butter chocolate coconut spread and top with some Superseedz. Try not to devour them too quickly…
