Pumpkin Spice Pecan Muffins (GF)

These are REALLY good... nice and moist.  These are the first pumpkin muffins I've made that have actually come out REALLY good !!!!  My co-workers liked these also.  These and the Apple Oat Bran Muffins  are their favorites !!!  

1/3 cup Oat Flour
1/3 cup Corn Flour
1/3 cup Potato Starch
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar)
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 to 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 

Mix the  bananas, vanilla, pumpkin, and applesauce in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan.   Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin Pan,Casabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
