Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Submitted by: Danamarie
I made these muffins for dinner tonight – they were kid-friendly and good. I got the recipe from the PCRM web site.
Makes 10 to 12 muffins
These fat-free muffins are moist and delicious.
2 cups whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 15-ounce can solid-pack pumpkin
½ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
Add pumpkin, ½ cup of water, and raisins. Stir until just mixed.
Spoon batter into oil-sprayed muffin cups, filling to just below tops.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until tops of muffins bounce back when pressed lightly. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and cool on a rack. Store cooled muffins in an airtight container.

Note: You may replace the pumpkin with 1 1/2 cups of cooked yams.
These muffins are very moist.
