Pumpkin Muffins To Make Your Kid "Go"

I've mentioned it before, several times, but before I had children I had no idea how much time I would devote to dealing with poo once they arrived. From the start, you are concerned with how often they poo, if they poo enough, if the poo is the right shape, color, and so on and so forth. A lot of all this really centers around what they eat. If they eat really good fruits and veggies and nuts and good fats, you probably don't have much to worry about. Nature will do it's thang. When you have a picky eater, though, things can get tricky. You have to try a little harder to get the good stuff into them. And thus get good poos.

Am I scaring those of you who do not have children yet?


So, I really would like to deal with poo as little as possible.

But my kid is one of those darn picky eaters. Getting good fiber and plenty of water and good fats into her is a struggle most days. That means I have to bake things that make my kid "go".

My life is so glamorous.

Just in case you are looking to do the same thing, I've got another muffin recipe I recently tried.

I used the Libby's Pumpkin Muffin recipe and tweaked a bit.


  • 3 cups whole flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups granulated  cane sugar
  • 1 can (15 ounces) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive  oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • sugar to sprinkle muffin tops with
Mix together, pour into muffin cups. sprinkle sugar on top and bake half hour at 350 degrees.

Worked like a charm.

Bet you're thankful for that mental image, right?
