Healthy Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Always wanting to try new healthy muffin recipes, I decided to make pumpkin muffins for the fall season. I searched online for some recipes and modified this one slightly to yield tasty, healthy muffins. Accordingly to the online nutrition facts calculator that I discovered each muffin has 180 calories, 5 g fat and 2 g fiber. Not bad for breakfast! And the best part is that they also taste delicious!

2/3 C white flour
1/4 C oil
1/4 fat free vanilla yogurt

  1. If only I could cook! I may pass this recipe on to my mom. Looks fabulous!

  2. They are really easy! Just measuring and mixing. The only trick is not to mix the dry and wet ingredients together too much or the muffins will be tough. You should try them!
