    Super moist and yummy! Thanks so much for the recipe. I doubled the recipe, which ended up being 3 pans of regular muffin size, and half of a mini muffin pan. I also used Trader Joe's pumpkin pecan oatmeal packets, because I didn't really enjoy the flavor as a straight up oatmeal--but In the muffins-- delicious. I also added cinnamon in addition to the pumpkin pie spice.. maybe 2 tsps of cinnamon.... and added 1.5 cups finely chopped walnuts. (Maybe too many walnuts... oops.) No raisins for my kiddos, but I'm sure they would be delicious as well as shredded carrots. The cooking time was perfect... 22 min. and about 17 for the mini muffins. And although we still have too much Halloween candy around the house, I added a bit of raw sugar as a crunchy topping just before popping them in the oven. I think it helps distract the kids from the little nuts. At least I hope!

    I used approx. 1/4 less baking powder... so, not a full Tablespoon. (times 2 for my doubled recipe equaled about 1.5 T of baking powder.) Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone!

    This has been in the recipe box for awhile, wish it had been tried earlier -- recipe is very good, thought it might have too much baking powder, however, it made up perfectly without that aftertaste which is an indiator of this,and rose well. Decided to replace the raisins & walnuts with chocolate covered rasisins, which I did add to the batter at the very end. Very pleased with the result -- light, pretty, moist, with excellent flavor. Will be a regular in our home, especially for the fall seaon!
