Chai spiced pumpkin muffins

Chai spiced pumpkin muffins

Introduction

With fall in full swing, I love making pumpkin treats. I also love chai tea. This combines both, in a muffin that is spicy, but lightly sweet. I like them with a small cup of vanilla soy milk.

I found this recipe online and tried to make it healthier by subbing splenda for sugar, and reducing the amount of butter/margarine.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients and spices, except for sugar. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the splenda and butter until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and pumpkin, and blend until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and stir until everything is just evenly moist. Grease some regular muffin cups, or line them. I prefer to grease, I don't use liners.

Fill the muffin cups roughly 1/2 - 2/3 full with the batter. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 14 muffins using standard sized muffin tins.

Number of Servings: 14
