Addictive Pumpkin Muffins


"This is my lower fat version of a pumpkin bread recipe using extra pumpkin and no oil. You can also substitute artificial sweetener for half of the sugar, and some whole wheat flour for nutrition, and they still taste great. They freeze very well; just microwave a frozen muffin for 20 to 30 seconds and it's ready."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). Grease three 12 cup muffin pans, or line with paper muffin liners. Soak raisins in hot water for ten minutes to plump, then drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground cloves. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin, and applesauce, until smooth. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly to make a smooth batter. Stir the raisins and walnuts into the batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

I honestly didn't go crazy for these. I love a yummy healthy snack... but these just weren't up to par as far as pumpkin bread goes.

These just came out of the oven, and they're wonderful! I made a few changes to make them even healthier: cranberries instead of raisins, 2 cups of white flour and 2 3/4 cups of an equal mix of ...

These muffins are a staple in our household. I use whole wheat flour instead of white and chocolate chips instead of raisins. I also just do 2 1/4 t cinnamon and 2 1/4 t nutmeg (I don't do the g...

ADDICTIVE is right!!! My picky two-year old and I absolutely love these muffins. Very nutritious. Even better after being in the freezer. I found it was much easier to just grease the muffin...

These are sooooo yummy, but I made some modifications - personal preference. I use whole wheat flour and cut way back on the sugar. I also use egg substitute. Fantastic!

Wonderful!! I used less sugar per other reviews (about 3/4 cup rather than 1 1/3 cups for 1/3 the recipe), otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I don't understand any of the negative reviews!
