i've removed the oil from my recipe and replaced it with applesauce, eliminated the chocolate chips and lowered the sugar. i haven't tried this, but it seems like it'll work.

Recipe Ingredients for light vegan pumpkin muffins

1 cup pumpkin, canned
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat bran
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Recipe Directions for light vegan pumpkin muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a nonstick muffin tin sprayed well with nonstick spray, or line the tin with paper muffin cups. Set aside.

  2. Put the pumpkin, water, applesauce, and vanilla in a blender and process on high for at least one minute, until light in color and well-blended. Set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, wheat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the pumpkin mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon or large spatula until well-blended. If the mixture seems a little dry, add extra water.

  4. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, distributing evenly to make 12 muffins.

  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then gently lift each muffin from the muffin tin. Finish cooling on a wire rack.
