Pumpkin Munchkins

These were a wonderful hit with my daycare and my family. Give them a try for a seasonal treat - so much better than the drive-thru!
This is an original recipe, please be kind and link back to me if you share it - thanks:)


Pumpkin Munchkins

Yield: 50-60 munchkins, can be cut in half
Wet ingredients:
2/3 cup oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1 can pumpkin (1 ½ - 1 ¾ cup can, NOT pie filling)
1 cup milk

Dry ingredients:
3 ½ cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Coating:
¾ cup butter, melted
¾ cup sugar
1-2 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray-coat 2 or 3 (24-cup) mini muffin pans.
  2. In large bowl or bowl of electric stand mixer  fit with paddle attachment combine wet ingredients. Beat on medium until smooth. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined but not over beaten.
  1. Using a medium cookie scoop, fill each cup about ¾-full of dough. Bake for about 14-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan then cool on wire rack.
  2. While munchkins are cooling melt butter in a medium dish and combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a second dish. While munchkins are warm but not hot dip each one in butter and then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Set on plate and serve while still warm or cover and store for 5 days.



  I hope you enjoy these healthy munchkins. Have a blessed day:)

Your munchkins sound delicious! I'm copying the recipe to have my granddaughters make them when they visit next. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
Btw, word verification is keeping a lot of folks from leaving comments. I switched and have had no spam since. Have a look here: http://run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com/2012/02/word-verification-woes.html
