What is more perfect for Halloween than a pumpkin-flavored cupcake? The pumpkin purée (which has a similar consistency to applesauce) is actually the perfect ingredient to use as a substitute for oils and fats in baking. The end result is an incredibly moist cupcake that has the fiber and health of pumpkin without the fat and calories of oil. With such a healthy cream cheese cupcake, this recipe allows for a slight splurge on the frosting. To make it even more Halloween-friendly, add a couple drops of orange food dye and top with a green stem candy to make it look like a little pumpkin!
