Pumpkin Raisin Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Judy from Hawaii

A couple of years ago, I decided to search out the perfect pumpkin muffin. I Googled & got hundreds of hits. I printed out the ones that looked like winners & tried a few. When I got to this one, my search ended. These muffins are very rich & obviously not diet food! But they are one of my favorites & I hope you will enjoy them too. The original recipe called for walnuts & fewer raisins, but I adapted them to my tastes. I recently made this recipe using about 2/3s of the sugar & substituting fresh chopped cranberries for the raisins. It was really good that way too.

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.
