          Chef tips

          • This recipe uses pumpkin from a tin for this recipe - be careful as there are 2 types, a pie filling version which has spices added and a cooked pumpkin version which is a puree. 
          • If you want to use fresh pumpkin, chop the pumpkin into slices and steam until soft mash. Allow to cool before using in the recipe. 
          • You can add 75g of grated courgettes and carrot to this recipe. 
          • Slice the muffins to use them in sandwiches or toast for breakfast. 
          • You can freeze these muffins 3 months - slice before freezing.
          • You can add other spices to this loaf including ground paprika, cumin, chilli powder.
