Pumpkin Spice Muffins...

Today I took my last container of frozen pumpkin puree. At halloween I bought a huge pumpkin and cooked and pureed it, and froze it. I have been swimming in pumpkin ever since, and finally I have used it all up!
These might be my favourite muffins. They scream Autumn, which is a little weird in the middle of summer, but whatever! They were delicious.
Here's the recipe:

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon of all spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh - fresh is obviously best!!!)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Line or grease your muffin pan. Sift the flour, sugar, spices, baking powder, and baking soda into a large bowl.  Mix with a wooden spoon to combine. Make a little well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add all of the wet ingredients into this well. Don't worry too much, it will definitely not stay in the well, it'll go everywhere. Add the raisins, and mix well. 

  • Then you're ready to go! Pour the batter into the muffin tins. Makes 12 muffins

  • Voila! I hope you try this, and enjoy because they are sooooo good! My husband hates raisins and he still really likes these muffins. You can also add nuts, like walnuts if you want. I didn't have any on hand today or I would have!

  • Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
