Pumpkin Spice Oat Bran Muffins

Yield: 18 muffins

What You'll Need:
2 1/4 c toasted oat bran ( I get mine from Trader Joe's)
1 can canned pumpkin (about 2 cups)
2/3 c. milk
1/4c egg whites ( or 1 egg and 1 egg white)
1/3 c all purpose flour
1/4 c. apple sauce
2/3 c turbinado sugar
1 Haas avocado, mashed (medium sized avocado)
1 Tbs and 1 tsp brown sugar
1 Tbs and 1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice powder
1/2 tsp clove powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Optional: 1/3 c. dark chocolate chips

What To Do:
Preheat oven to 375ยบ.
In a bowl mix together: eggs, sugar, avocado, pumpkin, milk and applesauce until well blended. In a separate bowl, mix together: flour, spices, oat bran and baking powder. Gradually add flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture; mix until well blended. Mix in chocolate chips. Spoon into foil cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes.


* To make cupcakes rather than bran muffins, substitute white flour in place of oat bran
* To make low-fat cream cheese frosting: mix powdered sugar and cream cheese together until frosting is of desired consistency. Add freshly chopped pecans or walnuts.
