This was a good recipe. I only used 1 T. oil and instead of Splenda (which I don't use) I used 1/4 c. brown sugar. I also omitted the nuts and instead sprinkled white chips on top. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the powdered milk, I think when I make this again (and I will!) I'll use skim milk instead of the water/powdered milk mixture. I got 13 muffins that puffed up beautifully!

Delicious! Not too sweet tasting, which is just fine with me! Nice texture. I also added a bit of ginger, since I really like ginger in pumpkin things :) I put the nuts IN the muffins instead of on top, because I didn't read the instructions properly-duh! Thanks for this keeper, Paula.

These muffins are delish! I changed the spices up a bit adding more cinnamon, less of the cloves and nutmeg as I find them strong tasting. Used 2 eggs in place of the egg substitute. As a note to others - I used paper liners rather than grease the pan as directed and that was a mistake as the muffins stuck to the paper. An excellent recipe that I will certainly make many more times. Thanks Paula!
