Healthy Pumpkin Frosting

October 22, 2013

Author Notes: Lately I've become slightly obsessed with topping muffins with healthy frosting. I guess a muffin is a cupcake if you add frosting, but I'm still calling them muffins so I can get away with eating them for breakfast. Since the season of all things pumpkin is upon us, I thought it'd be great to have a pumpkin frosting to top some blueberry muffins I made. Here's the link to my post/recipe: Held

Serves: 8


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, smooth (no added salt/sugar)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. In a bowl, mix together peanut butter, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and cinnamon. Eat immediately or allow to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Best if eaten the same day it is made.
