This is a great healthy muffin recipe. I made a couple of changes... Nothing major. I just used whole wheat flour, and Splenda instead of sugar. With the Splenda change, I calculated it, and each mini-muffin is about 35 calories. Amazing, right? I also used a different blend of spices (1 Tbsp Cinnamon, 1 tsp Nutmeg, 1/2 tsp Cloves, no allspice or ginger), just because that's how I like it. Aside from being healthy, they taste great too. I probably should have halved the recipe because I might try to eat all 48 muffins in one sitting.

while it looks and sounds delicious, i would hardly call a recipe with only white flour "virtuous". try half wheat flour, or a whole wheat pastry flour (ghram flour) for a healthier result. If you like lover sugar, try a half sugar half sweetener brand, otherwise you can cut the sugar to 1 c or even 3/4 cup and retain the sweetness. maybe you could even taste the pumpkin then.

These are delicious muffins! They are also very addictive. I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing! They are going to be my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner with the family this year. I plan on topping some of them with vanilla icing and sprinkling them with chopped walnuts. This is a great recipe that will sure to be a hit with the entire family! Thank you so much for sharing it. Excellent recipe!
