  • 1 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 c. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3 c. coconut palm sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. raw sugar or white sugar
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 c. applesauce
  • 1/2 c. canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 c. plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. frozen blueberries optional


  1. Preheat an oven to 400 F. Grease 18-20 muffin cups, or line the cups with paper muffin liners.

  2. Whisk together the flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  3. Combine the coconut palm sugar, raw sugar, oil, applesauce, pumpkin, yogurt, and beaten eggs and mix until well blended. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  4. Fold in the blueberries (if using).
  5. Divide the batter evenly in the prepared muffin pan. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool the muffin pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
If you aren't going to devour them all in one sitting like I did... ok, ok, it wasn't really like that. But if you aren't going to eat them within a couple of days you will want to refrigerate them. Because they are so moist, they will go bad rather quickly otherwise.
