Asher's Favorite Pumpkin Muffins

We've been fully embracing fall around here. We love the cooler temperatures, warm soups, and pumpkin everything. Asher has been loving pumpkin! He'll eat plain pumpkin puree as happy as can be! Yesterday morning was pretty chilly, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to bake up some pumpkin bread! I took our family recipe and tweeked it so it's much healthier, but still just as delicious! Asher begs for more! Here's the recipe:

1 c Quinoa Flour
2 1/2 c Whole Wheat Pastry flour (you could use all whole wheat flour, but I like the nutritional boost of the quinoa flour)
2 t soda
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/3 c water
4 eggs
3/4 c oil (I'll switch this out for plain greek yogurt next time, but I was all out)
2 cans pumpkin
1 3/4 c agave (or1 1/5c honey )

Whisk all the dry ingredients, set aside. Mix all the wet ingredients, then fold into the dry. pour into loaf pans and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out crumbly.

This makes 2 loafs. I only have 1 so I made one loaf and poured the rest into cupcake liners and made muffins! As you can tell, Asher thoroughly enjoys the treat!

 Saying 'Cheese!!' while eating! He's multi-talented!

 Easier access if you lay down next to the plate while eating.
