Blog savory pumpkin cheese muffins (2)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk yogurt or coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp minced shallot
  • 11/2 cups gluten free flour (or wheat flour if you’re not making this GF)
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric (optional – it’s not enough to add flavor, but it does add beautiful golden color and turmeric is good for you!)
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • dash salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper liners.
  • In a bowl, whisk together pumpkin, yogurt, eggs, butter and shallots. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until just combined. Fold in 1 cup cheese.
  • Evenly divide batter in the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle each muffin with remaining cheese and pumpkin seeds.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and muffins are golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool in the tin 10 minutes before cooling on a wire rack. Best served warm.
