Pumpkin Plans

The Hulk and I both love pumpkin. Not just the pumpkin carving and decorating. But we also like to eat pumpkin. And I'm always looking for new recipes to try using pumpkin. I found a recipe I kinda liked but then I had to change it up a bit to meet our needs. So below is my recipe for pumpkin pancakes or pumpkin muffins.

2 eggs
1/4 cup splenda (or sugar)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon

Blend all ingredients together until they are mixed well. You can either cook as pancakes which The Hulk prefers. Or you can cook them as muffins which I prefer. If you cook as muffins I cooked them at 375 for about 25 minutes.

Easy to make, cheap to make, high fiber and not to much fat. And if you are diabetic this is one muffin that doesn't shoot my blood sugar to the roof. So hopefully it won't for you either! We like it and hope you will too!

Check out all the pumpkin recipes at Hungry-girl.com. Just do a search for pumpkin. She LOVES Libby's canned pumpkin and uses it a lot in her recipes.

Have you ever tried making chocolate muffins with pumpkin? All you do is mix 1 box of devil's food cake mix with 1 can of pumpkin (the 16 oz. can) and divide over 12 muffin cups. They are 2 WW points each! So moist and yummy. I found that recipe on her website and used to make them all the time. I will now put these on my shopping list. :)

Ok, I just found the link, they are actually called "Yum Yum Brownie Muffins" and the link is within this article that also mentions other ways to use cake mix and pumpkin...
