Savoury Pumpkin Muffins

Savoury Pumpkin Muffins 0

My Kids love to eat muffins, usually of the sweet variety, but I wanted to try and get more nutrition into their snacks so I thought...why not try a savoury muffin. If i'd called these pumpkin muffins, neither of them would have touched them. Needless to say, they were a hit. It's all in the marketing.. ha ha.
So here is the recipe.. Feel free to modify it according to any additional dietary needs, but they worked well.  I'd recommend just reheat slightly before eating if they don't all get consumed on the first day to return their freshness but otherwise they were great.
Ingredients
 
3/4 Cup Tapioca Flour
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1 1/2 cups gf flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flakes
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup / rice syrup or a combination of the two
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
2 eggs
1 tbsp baking soda
 
Method;
 
Whisk oil and syrup together then add eggs, spices, pureed pumpkin, and then milk. Whisk well
 
Then add buckwheat flakes, flours, and mix together
 
Pour into a greased muffin tray.  Cook for 18-20 min at 180deg. 
 
Makes 12. 
 
I have not tried egg free, but I am sure an egg replacer would work well.

Did you know that AllergyTrain / Hopper HQ owns the Hopper brand?
AllergyTrain took over Hopper in August 2011 and have continued to expand the range and make the product more suitable for people with a whole range of allergies or intolerances.

Our Sprinkles and 100’s and 1000’s are gluten free, dairy free and nut free and come in 22 different varieties.

Hopper natural food decorations are vibrant and a great alternative to the artificial, chemically made colours that are known to cause behavioural and other issues for children. The colours are made from plant and vegetable concentrates and processed with water only and are therefore also great for the eco conscious.

Decorate your favourite themed cakes with our great range of natural colours, sprinkles and 100's and 1000's. 

All of our sprinkles except the gorgeous rainbow cake decorations are packed in individual colours so you can use them for your own creations without worrying about having a colour you don't want. You can make fire engines, trains, rockets, animals, princesses, fairies, ocean themes, pirates, superheroes, lego cakes, fairy bread cakes, Frozen themed cakes or popular gaming cakes like Minecraft & Super Mario, and only use the colours you need.

Your imagination is the limiting factor.
