Maple Muffins

I started out a third day of painting (actual painting--the last two days were just priming) on a sweet note: Maple Muffins from the Happy Herbivore Cookbook.

Made with pumpkin and applesauce, these are fat-free and just 3 WeightWatchers PointsPlus values (that's low). They weren't super dense like most oil-free muffins. Instead, they were surprisingly light. With a hint of maple and pumpkin pie spice flavor, they were just sweet enough. They were fantastic--a great start to a day I'm not looking forward to.

A similar recipe is posted on the Happy Herbivore website (you can use either sweet potato or pumpkin puree; the version I made didn't call for flax eggs).


  1. I just got this cookbook! Super excited to make a LOT of things, but these were definitely on the list.

  2. Yum! These sounds so good. I so want that cookbook. I asked for it for my b-day, but it was on back order. My husband did promise me that he would still get it for me though....I need to remind him of that. :o)
