  • 1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin

  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Topping Ideas

  • pumpkin seeds
  • chopped pecans

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Paper-line or grease 12 muffin cups.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in a large bowl. Combine sugar, brown sugar, coconut flakes, pumpkin, eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl; beat until just blended. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture; stir just until moistened.

Notes

This is my favorite pumpkin pie spice combination. If you prefer, you can add 1 tablespoon of a commercial brand of pumpkin spice instead.
