Pumpkin theme

Ok, so here is the recipe specifically for Suzi Poland :) and for Helga :) – for delicious and sooo healthy pumpkin muffins. My favourit gourmet says they are so healthy you can eat them in whatever quantity you like, but about that one I am not completely sure…

Here it goes.
You need:
3 cups of steam cooked grated pumpkin for very moist muffins (btw grated cooked pumpkin will give you something rather close to pumpkin puree), or 3 cups of fresh grated pumpkin;
3 cups (half and half) of rice and millet flour;
1/3 cup of chocolate chips (quality dark chocolate chopped in kitchen robot);
2 big soup spoons of honey;
1 tea spoon raw cacao powder;
2 egs (separate egg whites, (to make the well whisked firm egg foam), from egg yolks, (which you will put into the mixture of wet ingredients);
1/3 cup of raisins (soaked in warm water 15 minutes before putting them into the batter);
1/3 cup of walnuts or roasted sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds!;
whatever spices you like – I put ‘christams spices’;
baking soda;
gluten free, sulfates free baking powder;
1/3 cup of olive oil – or milk, (almond milk, rice milk, soy milk);

Mix the egg yolks, honey, cacao and spices together, (a drop of olive oil if you wish) add grated pumpkin, raisins, nuts, then the flour, chocolate chips, baking soda and baking powder, stir well, but gently, add some milk if the batter is too dense, but leave some density because you will stir in the egg whites as the last ingredient. Stir gently the whole thing and voilà the batter is ready for the muffins cups.
You will get approximatly 21 medium muffins.

About atreewalker

It was a warm spring morning in the olive grove. The breeze was gentle, the air was fragrant, the time stood still. High grass, sprinkled with colourful small-headed flowers, was gently tickling my knees. Poppies were about to splash their intense red on the antic ruins. 'Look how beautiful it is all over', I whispered to the olive trees, 'a perfect time for a stroll.' I slipped my fingers into the open palms at the end of their branches and I took them for a walk.
