  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat twelve 2- ½-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg, pumpkin, buttermilk, applesauce, brown sugar, and oil; add pumpkin mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.
  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean.
  4. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.
  • Tips: You can substitute 2 eggs, lightly beaten, for ½ cup egg substitute.
  • To make ¾ cup sour milk, place 2¼ teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make ¾ cup total liquid; stir. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.
