15 ounces canned pumpkin (or fresh pureed pumpkin)
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
½ cup hot water
1 ¼ cups brown sugar, packed
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
1 TBS baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp ground cloves
3/4 tsp fresh orange zest (optional)
-Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease a muffin pan or use paper liners.
-In a small bowl, whisk together the hot water and Coconut Cloud pumpkin spice creamer and set aside.
-In a large mixing bowl, add the canned pumpkin, coconut oil, Coconut Cloud mixture, and brown sugar. Whisk until well combined and smooth.
-Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and spices over the wet mixture and gently stir together until just combined. Do not over mix!
-Fold in any optional ingredients (like the orange zest!) if using, and then fill the muffin cups two-thirds full.
-Bake for 22-24 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
