Recipe Ingredients for Jenna's Healthy Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

4 oz cream cheese
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg whites
3/4 tbsp flour
1 cup great northern beans
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup water
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Recipe Directions for Jenna's Healthy Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour two muffin tins.

  2. For the Cream Cheese Filling: Beat the cream cheese just until smooth in a stand mixer or food processor. Add the sugar and process just until smooth and creamy. Add the egg whites, one at a time, processing just until incorporated. Do not over process. Stir in the flour. Set aside.

  3. For the Pumpkin Bread: Using a food processor or blender, process the beans until a smooth paste is formed. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl, add the beans, and set aside.

  4. In another large bowl, whisk together the egg whites until lightly beaten. Whisk in the sugar, vanilla, and applesauce, then stir in the pumpkin, water, and vanilla extract.

  5. Stir the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, being careful not to overmix. A few streaks of flour are fine. Divide the batter in half. Take one half and divide it between the two pans. Pour half of the cream cheese filling into each pan, then top with the remaining half of batter. Smooth the tops and bake 23 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  6. Cool pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out and cool muffins to room temperature.
