Pumpkin muffins the lazy way! This recipe was adapted from a great one on A Life Less Sweet (http://alifelesssweet.blogspot.com/2009/01/snack-time.html). I swapped out some white sugar for brown sugar because I ran out of the white stuff, and it worked out very nicely. Likewise, I used apple (yes, apple) pie spice and ground cloves in place of the more standard pumpkin-pie-spice or a custom blend, because A) I'm lazy and B) that's what I had handy :) Otherwise, the only adaptation is that didn't read the directions when I made my muffins -- just dumped all the ingredients in a bowl and ran with it. It worked out well, so I've based my directions on that method.

Recipe Ingredients for Lazy Pumpkin Muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup olive oil
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Lazy Pumpkin Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Line muffin cups with paper liners or spray muffin cups or loaf pans with baking release spray.

  3. Toss all the ingredients in a large bowl.

  4. Mix until smooth.

  5. If making muffins, fill each up about 3/4 of the way. If making a loaf or loaves, fill the loaf pans nearly to the rim.

  6. Bake muffins for about 20 minutes and loaves for about 30 - 40 minutes (depending on loaf size), or until a fork or toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
