Wildflower Honey Pumpkin Muffins

I love the Fall.

And it's just around the corner. In fact, here in Newfoundland we are already having beautiful, crisp, sunny days.

Don't get me wrong, I love summer. But this summer was a total dud, where we experienced mostly grey, dull, rainy days.

And Fall has so much to offer. Beautiful colors, crunchy leaves, sweater weather, Thanksgiving, warm comforting meals, scarves, Halloween, and Pumpkin!

What's your favorite thing about Fall?

So, trade in your summer dress for a cozy sweater and appreciate all that is Fall!

Wildflower Honey Pumpkin Muffins
Recipe adapted from 'The Joy Of Cooking'
Makes about 1 1/2 Dozen Muffins


1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour [feel free to use only all purpose]
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 796ml Can Pumpkin
1 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Ground Cloves
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Canola Oil
2 Large Eggs
3 Tsp Vanilla
4 Tbsp Wildflower Honey [or any honey you prefer]
Sesame Seeds [optional]


Preheat over to 350

In bowl, combine all dry ingredients except the brown sugar.
In another bowl, combine all wet ingredients and brown sugar.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine, do not over-mix.
Spoon batter into greased cupcake tins and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 30-35 minutes, this would also be great baked in a loaf tin.

You can thank me later for just how intoxicating these make your home smell :)

Take care,
