Miriam Kairey is officially our Thanksgiving Hostess ever since she became famous for her how to roast the  Perfect Turkey  with Cranbery Relish Recipe! I gobbled these muffins at Miriam’s home while she hosted an entire film crew as we interviewed several more of our community’s elders for The Sephardic Heritage Museum. These pumpkin muffins were perfect as an early morning breakfast with piping hot coffee! Thank you Miriam! Marlene

“Hi Marlene!

I baked these hearty lowfat muffins yesterday  It is an original recipe (I made it up myself). This recipe is designed to take advantage of fresh pumpkin in season.  It is a healthy on-the-go breakfast or school snack. Pop them in the freezer and warm them up on a cold winter morning! Miriam”

How to make your own Pumpkin Puree:

  •  1 4lb organic pumpkin

Heat oven to 350.  Poke a few holes in pumpkin with a knife.  Place on a parchment lined baking tray.  Bake until soft to touch, about 1 ½ to 2 hrs.  Remove from oven, Peel off loose skin, and put in colander to drain off excess moisture.  When cool, peel, slice open and remove stringy center.  Reserve seeds for roasting. Chop pulp into cubes and puree in food processor.

Low Fat Pumpkin Muffins:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup white whole wheat flour*
  • 2 heaping Tbs. ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten.
  • 1 ¼ cup pumkin puree (or equivalent canned)

*a mild tasting wheat flour, available under the King Arthur or Trader Joe brands

Heat oven to 350.  Spray a 12 muffin tin with Pam.  In a mixing bowl combine flours, flax seeds, sugar, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In another bowl mix yogurt, eggs and pumpkin.  Combine wet and dry ingredients and pour evenly into muffin tin.  Bake for about 18 minutes or until top of muffin springs back when touched.

Parve Pumpkin Banana variation:  Omit greek yogurt. Use ¾ cup sugar instead of 1 cup.  Use 1 cup of pumpkin puree instead of 1 ¼ cup.  Add 1 thoroughly mashed overripe banana to wet ingredients.
