If you are like me and love pumpkin muffins, it’s a good idea to stock up on canned pumpkin while it is on sale before Halloween and Thanksgiving. Use one of those cans of pumpkin to make your own whole wheat pumpkin muffins.

These muffins taste great and perfect for people who avoid dairy. Whether you are lactose intolerant, need parve dishes for your Kosher dinner table or simply like pumpkin, these muffins are a winner.

Coat your muffin tins with cooking spray, and fill the muffins to just under the top. I personally like my silicone muffin tin, but you can use any type of muffin pan and they should work just as well. If you are using a mini-muffin tin, be sure to short the time you cook.

If you are using a regular size muffin pan, bake the muffins in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
