Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs, plus 1 white

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a cupcake pan by lining with paper or silicone cups, or greasing thoroughly with coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and egg white. Add pumpkin, butter, and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth.

  4. Add dry ingredients to the pumpkin/egg mixture. Stir until no lumps remain and ingredients are well combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan, dividing evenly into 12 cups. Bake for 25-30 minutes in preheated oven, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  6. If serving with frosting, allow cupcakes to fully cool before topping. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days, or refrigerate for up to a week.
