Recipe: Pumpkin Muffins (Gluten Free) (WITH VINE!)

I wanted to create a breakfast muffin that didn't taste like cardboard but was also sleeve friendly.  After doing some research, this is what I came up with. Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins with Almond and Flax Meal.

Bob's Red Mill - Finely Ground Almond Meal/flour
Bob's Red Mill - Ground Flax Meal 
Libby's - Canned Pumpkin, 
Baking Powder  
Kosher Salt
Egg- Whole Large
Vanilla Extract, Organic,  
                                                        Splenda - Granulated Sugar Sub,   
First I weight out the flour.  It is 3.3 oz of flax and 3oz of almond flour. I kitchen scale is an essential tool in my kitchen since I have to weigh so much of what I eat. 
Fresh ground nutmeg makes all the difference.
If you don't have a microplane, get one.  

Cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
Add this along with the splenda and baking powder to the flour and whisk together

Then mix the wet ingredients together. Eggs first, then add vanilla and water.

Slowly add the dry to the wet and combine.  It is a wetter batter, don't be tempted to add more flour, it is OK.  The muffins will be moist and delicious.

I used an ice crean scoop to fill the cupcake liners.  In retrospect, I would spray the liners with pam to prevent sticking.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
