Pumpkin spiced muffins (Halloween)

Today, October 30, we can’t have a recipe without pumpkin 😉

As you know, I love traditions. Although Halloween is an imported celebration, nowadays it lives together with our own tradition: “Castanyada” where we eat chestnuts, baked sweet potatoes and “panellets” – a type of biscuit made with nuts and sugar.

On October 31, mixing both traditions, I like to prepare a dish with roasted pumpkin but also some baked sweet potatoes and chestnuts.

Here there is one of my “musts” for Halloween dinner: pumpkin savoury muffins. Healthy, super easy to do and delicious!

For 6-8 muffins:

150 gr. roasted pumpkin (*)

2 eggs

3 egg whites

1 spring onion

5 tablespoons oat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon ginger powder

50 gr. fresh cheese (I put Feta goat cheese)

salt, black pepper

……..

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.

Finely chop the onion and cook it for 1 minute in the microwave.

Put the eggs, egg whites, roasted pumpkin, ginger powder, salt & pepper to taste in the blender and blend for a few minutes.

Add the cooked onion, flour and baking powder to the mix of eggs. Mix again.

Pour it into the muffin moulds and place a cheese dice in the middle.

Bake them for 15-20 min. at 200 degrees.

Let them cool down and take them out of the moulds.

Ready to eat! 🙂
