My teenagers are always rummaging through the cupboards for a snack.  I make Pumpkin Snack Cakes and store them in the freezer.  Better than cookies, one little cake has over a gram of fiber and provides 20% of the RDA of Vitamin A.  Dry milk powder and chopped apricots replace the sugar to add extra calcium and Vitamin C.

Beat with electric mixer in large bowl:

1 – 15 ounce can pumpkin (1.5 cup cooked pumpkin)
.5 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1.5 cup skim milk
1.5 cup fat-free dry milk powder

Mix together in medium bowl:
2 cups all purpose flour
.5 cup wheat germ
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1.5 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons baking powder

Stir into pumpkin mixture.  Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and .5 cup finely chopped dried apricots.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray mini-muffin pans with cooking spray.  Spoon batter into pans and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 15 minutes.  Let cool on rack.  Store in tins, plastic bags or plastic containers.  Makes 72 cakes.
