1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoons ground cloves
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 pumpkin (fresh or canned, just not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup low-fat milk
Coating:1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
These are made in a mini muffin pan, but you could definitely use a regular size muffin tin, just add to your cooking time.

1.  Preheat your oven to 350 and spray your muffin pans.
2.  Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl and whisk till combined.
3.  In another bowl, mix together the oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk.
4.  Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix till it’s just combined (you don’t want to over mix).
5.  Fill your mini tins till almost full.
6.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
7.  While they’re baking, melt your butter and in a small bowl combine your sugar and cinnamon.
8.  Let the poppers cool for a few minutes before rolling them around in the melted butter and then plunging them into their cinnamon sugar bath.  If you want less sugary sweetness you could just dip the top of the muffin into the butter & cinnamon sugar.

We hope that you are enjoying all of these yummy fall recipes! Keep checking back every day because we have plenty more to share!

Have a great day ya'll!
