Now that the kids have headed back to school, we’ve been utilizing a portion of our Sundays to make some of our lunch goodies ahead of time so we aren’t in a rush as we’re getting ready for the day. One of our favorite options are muffins, which can be diverse and delicious, and when tossed in the freezer, stay fresh all week. They’re perfect as a snack, or tucked in a lunch along with cheese, fruit, and veggies. These are some of our go-tos, especially since our garden is gushing with pumpkins just begging to be made into puree for pies, stews, and muffins.

2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups flour (we do half whole wheat, half white flour)
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Tablespoons ground flax (optional)
2 Tablespoons wheat bran (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with liners, and spritz with cooking spray. Beat the eggs until fluffy, then add the oil, butter, egg, milk, and vanilla extract, and beat together until well combined. Then add the pumpkin puree and continue mixing until thoroughly mixed. Add the brown and granulated sugar, and stir to combine. Add the remaining dry ingredients, and beat just until the flour is incorporated. Scrape down the sides, and make sure everything is mixed in. Spoon batter into muffin liners, and fill 3/4 full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the muffin. When the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done. Remove from pan and cool five minutes before serving. If freezing, cool to room temperature, then pack in an airtight container.
