Healthy Pumpkin Muffins.

It's that time of year again. Time to break out the pumpkin recipes! This year I decided to make pumpkin muffins, however, I wouldn't exactly call them muffins, they're more like muffin tops. I thought they would rise like a typical muffin but these little babies stayed the way they looked when I put them into the oven. They're short and bite-size, but let's be honest, everyone's favorite part of the muffin is the top anyway so I don't think this was a problem. At about 80 calories a piece, 1 gram of fat and 14 grams of carbs, these are not only healthy, but extremely delicious! Enjoy!!!

Pumpkin Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze:

3 cups oatmeal.
2 tbsp. baking powder.
1 tsp. baking soda.
1/4 tsp. salt.
1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice.
2 cups pumpkin.
1/4 cup brown sugar.
1/2 cup apple sauce.
2 eggs.
1 tsp. vanilla.

Grind oatmeal in food processor to fine crumbs. Combine all dry ingredients except for sugar. In a seperate bowl combine all liquid ingredients and sugar. Combine liquid with dry ingredients. Spoon into paper lined muffin pans.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Drizzle with glaze.

Glaze:
1/4 cup powdered sugar.
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
2 tbsp. water.

Stir to combine; add water to drizzle consistency.
