Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Guys, in this house, we love our pumpkin flavour! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin overnight oats and now Pumpkin Spice Muffins!

Nutrient Snapshot of Pumpkin

  • Pumpkin, which is part of the winter squash family, is a better source of sugar, compared to their summer squash relatives. Pumpkin is exceptionally high in complex carbohydrates and is medicinal for diabetics and those with digestive problems.
  • It provides vitamins A and C, potassium, and magnesium. It is an excellent source of carotenoids and therefore has anticarcinogenic properties.
  • DON’T FORGET TO EAT THE SEEDS! All squash seeds are edible and contain healthy fat, protein, and fibre. The seeds have been used to help prostate and urinary problems, and their high-fat, low carb content is great for heart health.

I topped my muffins with honey and bee pollen to give a little extra boost for the immune system. On their own, they’re amazing too and kid-approved! Check out beekeepersnaturals.com for their amazing product line!

Featuring blueberries, pumpkin seeds, vitamin C and Sea Vegetables from @schinoussasuperfoods for “nature’s multivitamin.”

Can you get everything you need from food alone? Do supplements just make expensive pee?
