Most people don’t realize that pumpkins are loaded with Vitamin A – over 100% of the daily, FDA-recommended value is in just a half-cup serving — plus good amounts of Vitamins C and E, iron and fiber, to name a few of its other benefits. This low-carb, low-fat nutritional powerhouse vegetable is a natural to combine with a low glycemic sweetener like agave nectar.
I made a batch of these gluten-free pumpkin muffins with agave this week. And, I’m glad I did!
They rose well and have a smooth, attractive crust. And, they hold their texture when broken open, not crumbling apart like some muffins do.
