This is a double batch about 36 muffins

- 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 cup Truvia (Steiva that measures like sugar)

- 1 can 15 oz solid-pack canned pumpkin
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl; then stir in oats, carrots, dates, and raisins.

I go the original recipe from http://www.food.com/recipe/pumpkin-oatmeal-muffins-302200?oc=linkback
I altered this quite a bit. I added carrots and dates. Used Steiva instead of brown sugar They used 1.5 cups almond flour. I was out of almonds so I used lintel and barley flour. I used coconut oil and almond milk because they are healthier. If you don’t add raisins add a few more dates for sweetness.
Color Coded Muffins
Some in my family don’t like raisins and some that don’t like nuts. So, I bake batches without each and put them in different color papers so they can get the right ones.
Using Bean Flour in Cooking
- White beans or fava beans have a milder taste, making white bean flour or fava bean flour suitable for use in most recipes calling for white flour. Substitute 1/4 of the white flour for bean flour.
- Bean flour made from kidney, pinto, garbanzo, chana dal or black beans has a stronger flavor and is more suitable for inclusion in meat loaves or when making vegetable patties or vegetarian loaves.
- Bean flour can be whisked into soups and stews, adding flavor and goodness and can be used to thicken these dishes.
