These are very good as is but can be VERY "heart healthy" without sacrificing taste with these changes: replace white flour with 2 cups whole wheat flour and one cup rolled oats; Replace oil one for one with applesauce; replace eggs with egg beaters (1/4 cup per egg). I used canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice (6 teaspoons) to replace the other spices; and decrease sugar to 3/4 cup. This recipe will make 24 "normal" sized muffins that are about 100 calories.

Absolutely delicious! I cheated and used canned pumpkin in place of the fresh and the muffins were moist with just the right amount of spice. I'll definitely be making these again.

Insanely delicious muffins! My husband isn't a terribly big fan of pumpkin, and even he found them irresistible. I used 15 oz canned pumpkin like others suggested, and cut all the spices but the cinnamon in half. I substituted whole wheat flour for regular, Egg Beaters for the eggs, and used a 1/2 Splenda/ 1/2 sugar blend for the sugar. I also added 1 cup chocolate chips and an oatmeal streusel topping. Someone called these "coffeehouse quality" and I absolutely agree.
