Pumpkin muffins

I was not able to do my Finding Beauty in the Ordinary post yesterday, but I hope to continue for the rest of the week.

Yesterday I made pumpkin muffins. They are delicious and very healthy. I found the recipe here. I was looking for a recipe that didn't call for any sugar and was excited to find this recipe that not only doesn't include sugar, but also uses spelt and oat flours which do not turn to sugar as fast as wheat. I did add a little Truvia. They smell so good while they are baking!

I changed a few things in the recipe so this is how I made them.

Spelt Pumpkin Muffins

1 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/2 cup oat flour (I didn't have any oat flour, so I just ground some oats in a food processor)
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp. Truvia

2 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter, cooled (you can use oil)
3/4 cup yoghurt
1/4 rice milk (the original recipe calls for water, but I like to use rice milk to add a little sweetness)

Mix together the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. 
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients quickly and lightly with just a few strokes.
Put into greased muffin tins. 
Bake at 155* for at least 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean and muffins are fragrant.
Recipe yields about 16 small muffins.
