Its a gorgeous but chilly fall day here. After teaching Kettlebells this morning, one of my class participants, came up to me with a container of three pumpkin muffins. She said she used a recipe similar to Hotcakes' but without the oil. I definitely need this recipe, they are SOOOO good. I hadn't packed a snack for after my workout and I had to go straight to two other classes and clients and meetings so it was perfect to have these to snack on!
After a meeting and before a few more evening clients, I took sweet Georgia bee for a walk. More like a roll. She had a blast running all over and rolling in the grass. Its a great day for pumpkin muffins and its a great day to be a pup!
Im not a big fan of pumpkin spice lattes or stuff like that, but man, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin dip, pumpkin waffles, Im all over it. I love love love it.

Pumpkin is rich in fiber which leaves you feeling fuller, longer.
Despite this, its a low calorie food, at just 26cal per 100g. It is jam packed with beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E so its great for eye and skin health. Pumpkin also contains other vitamins and minerals such as the b-group of vitamins (folate, niacin, B-6, thiamin and more) as well as copper, calcium and potassium. There isn't any saturated fat or cholesterol in pumpkin so its perfect for those watching their diets for cholesterol.
