Ingredients:  
1 + 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Wet Ingredients:
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup oil (ie canola)

Directions:
Directions:
Mix dry ingredients. Combine with a fork or whisk to try to add air to the mixture for a light muffin. Mix wet ingredients separately and then add them to the dry and stir to combine (do not over mix). Add the dates, nuts, and water. Fill mini muffin tin (For me it made 36 mini muffins). Bake at 325 degress for 15-20 minutes (just watch them closely and test with toothpick so you do not over cook..these are so nice and moist!).


For cream cheese frosting: Mix 4 oz cream cheese (at room temp) with about 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar and a good sprinkle of cinnamon. Taste to see if it needs more sugar/cinnamon to your tastes.


*Ive made them without dates and nuts when I haven't had them on hand and they were still delicious. I also usually make them plain, but the frosting is a nice option if you want them a little fancier or sweeter*
