“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.”

Directions

  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 didn't want to rate this recipe with stars because i made a lot of changes (thus a rating technically wouldn't be accurate), but i couldn't submit a review without a rating, so i'm giving it 5 stars for versatility. i scaled the recipe down to 12 muffins, used 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all-purpose flour, used starfruit (carambola) pulp instead of applesauce, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree, and used ginger instead of nutmeg (didn't have any). i also added 4 tbsp of whole flax seed for a nutty texture. The muffins rose nicely, were very fluffy and not dense. They were just faintly sweet, which which i prefer (i don't have much of a sweet tooth). i used paper liners, and the only drawback was that the muffins stuck to the liners. next time i would use a non-stick spray. but overall, great recipe to start with. i've included a picture as well.

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 ground flaxseed, oatmeal and whole wheat flour, and only 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of Splenda. The muffins came out very moist and are still sweet (which is saying a lot, since I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!). I will definitely make these again!

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 ground cloves.) It's a great healthy snack. Thanks!
