So, yeah, this recipe…
This recipe is one of the most brilliant ideas I’ve ever heard of.
These slightly sweet, super moist pumpkin pie muffins are 100% vegan, fairly low in sugar, and are made with whole wheat flour. Oh, and did I mention they are also filled with a homemade pumpkin pie filling?
Not mixed with a pre-made, chemical infused canned pumpkin pie filling, but STUFFED with a pumpkin mixture that tastes exactly like pumpkin pie that can easily be thrown together in a matter of minutes.
This idea makes me want to scratch my head and scream, “Why didn’t I think of that?!?” Because I so totally didn’t.
My HUSBAND did.
GAH! I love that man.
How could I have never seen these before? How could I have never thought of these before?!?
I’m not kidding.
These had to have been made before by someone, right?
I’m sure they have, but I couldn’t find a recipe like this anywhere on the interwebz. Once Will put the idea in my head, I just knew that I was going to Google the term and find that this recipe had been made a gazillion, million times before by everyone and their sister’s cousin’s baby daddy, just like the absolutely delicious cheesecake filled pumpkin muffins that you see everywhere nowadays.
I sure didn’t find a one.
How is that possible?
I did find recipes called “Pumpkin Pie Filling Muffins” or “Pumpkin Muffins made with Pumpkin Pie Filling”, but I did not find a muffin recipe that actually filled the muffins with pumpkin pie filling.
Clearly, I’m not at all saying that this hasn’t been done before, but I am saying that I’ve never seen it.
