WOW! I halved the recipe, and halved the sugar (so instead of 1.5 cups I used 3/4 cup, and half white half brown) I used mostly WW pastry flour, with .25 cup AP flour, added vanilla, and used soymilk instead of water. I also added chocolate chips to half of them, ommitting the raisins completely. They were PLENTY sweet! I was surprised the recipe called for 3 cups sugar. My usual recipe uses .5cup sugar for 2cups flour, so if you want to, or are worried about calories, halve the sugar and you won't miss a thing!!! The whole wheat flour makes the muffins sit lighter in the stomach, and I feel better about eating them. Try them!! Amazing!
Great muffin recipe. Added raisins to half and pecans to the other half. Didn't use pumpkin pie spice due to allergy but cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg instead. Delicious! Love the texture.
I made 1/3 of this recipe. Used one egg + 1.5 tsp chia seeds and had good consistency. Used olive oil (which another reviewer thought tasted funny, but I definitely didn't mind) and a little less sugar but far more raisins than suggested. Topped with oats, looks fabulous. Made 14 muffins, baked for 20 minutes.
This is the second pumpkin muffin recipe I tried this season and it beat the other one by a mile! Only issue I had is that the batter was really thin so the raisins ended up at the bottom of the pan and tasted a little burned. Most likely a measuring issue on my part though. Would definitely make again and I think at least half of the oil could be substituted with applesauce. I only cooked for 25 minutes.
These are wonderful muffins! There is a restaurant about an hour from my house that has wonderful Pumpkin Raisin Muffins. I have driven there just for the muffins! These are just as good, but way more convenient!
After eating these for 4 days straight and not getting sick of them I can officially say these are AMAZING!!!!!!!! I did omit the raisins, and made my own pumpkin pie spice by doubling what my pie recipe uses. Thank you for the best muffin recipe I have ever tried!
These are the BEST ever! I also subbed 2/3 of the sugar with brown sugar and omitted the raisins and these muffins were absolutely fabulous. Moist, flavorful. These don't stay around long. I made a double batch of batter so poured some in a 9 x 9 cake pan and baked a bit longer. Worked great. Wonderful! Thank you for posting this "best-ever" recipe!
Excellent! Subbed 2/3 of the sugar with brown sugar and omitted the raisins, and they're fantastic!
DELICIOUS! 10 STARS for this recipe. I rarely use oil when I bake as it is flavorless and often sub. it with butter or margarine. However I decided to try it with oil as the reviews seemed so good. Well the results were wonderful. The flavor is lovely and the spices are just right. I used all the sugar, and put some choc. chips in one batch. I had no raisins.They bake up beautifully round and darkish orange, just terrific. I had 36 average size muffins! for posting this recipe!!!
The whole family loved this one! And I shared it with my sister who made a batch and sent them with her 8 y/o son to school for the class. Her teacher had sent her an email requesting the recipe before she even made it home from dropping him off!!! These are good to freeze and pull out later too.
