  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Ingredients fort he frosting

  • 1 pkg ( 8 oz ) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp of unsalted butter, at room temperature

Let’s get started

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 12 piece  muffin tin with liners.

In a large bowl whisk together  the  5 ingredients : pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, yogurt and eggs just until well combined.

In other bowl stir together dried ingredients: flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Add the dry ingredients to the puree cream and whisk until everything is incorporated.

Using  a table spoon or a ice scoop fill in the liners and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick is coming out clean.

Let them cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then remove them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

In a large bowl cream together the ingredients for the frosting until smooth and creamy and if the muffins were cooling down start to decorate them using your imagination.
