Vanilla Nut Nog leftovers = Vanilla Pumpkin Muffins by LBT

Ok ok so your holiday parties are coming up and you have the Vanilla Nut Nog recipe ready but need to know what to do with all the 'leftovers' from the Brazil nut and date mixture! I've got the answer.
Vanilla Pumpkin Muffins!!

Ingredients: makes about 12 muffins

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup honey - I used honey one batch and Molasses for another. The Molasses WINS!!!
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla (yes, the "leftover" mixture has a vanilla flavor already but I added a bit more)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 cups Brazil Nut/Date flour from Nut Nog**If you are not using leftovers from last week's Vanilla Nut Nog recipe, simply use 2 1/2 cups of almond flour, add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup chopped dates or raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine everything EXCEPT nut flour (**walnuts and dates)
  3. Stir in nut flour until well combined (**walnuts and dates)
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cups and press down any bumps on the tops before baking
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

The Vanilla Nut Nog leftovers were enough to make 2 batches and the batch with the Molasses was by far the most popular with the CrossFit Central crew!

The honey muffin is the one on the left - molasses on the right, darker color but super moist!
