1/3 cup buttermilk (you can make your own by adding lemon juice to milk and leaving at room temperature for about 10 minutes – ratio 1 cup milk:1 tbsp lemon juice)

Brush on sugar coating while muffin is still hot
Our Nutritionist says
"Use raw organic honey as it has superior nutritional benefits over regular heat-treated honey which is usually highly processed. Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene, which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties), and a rich source of vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fibre."
