I've been on a quest for some time to make some muffins I could "afford" in the morning. This is my latest concoction. They aren't light and fluffy like Starbuck's, but they are reasonable in carbs, fat, and calories. They end up at 16 g of carbs per muffin after subtracting fiber. (I didn't use artificial sweetener, because I don't want my kids eating the chemicals and find that they just taste better using "real" ingredients.)

Lowfat Pumpkin Muffins

1 cup pureed pumpkin
2 eggs
¼ cup sugar
2 tbsp unsulfured molasses
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp pure vanilla
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup unbleached flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup wheat bran
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 425F. Mix first 7 ingredients together until well blended. In a separate bowl, blend all other ingredients, then gently fold into muffin mix. Stir just until blended. Spoon into 12 muffin cups and bake for 12 – 15 minutes.
