At pumpkin harvest time, these muffins are a favorite at our house. You'll love the spicy taste, plump raisins and crunchy walnuts. They freeze well, too.

"Made these for a fall fest at my son's school. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour, and 2 cups all purpose. I also cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, and used applesauce instead of oil. The treats needed to be nut free so I omitted the raisins and nuts, but I will make a batch for home and add those back in! These were very moist and tasty muffins!"

"As I do with all of my muffins, I cut the sugar in half, replaced oil with applesauce and used whole wheat flour. They turned out great! I'm glad I made a double batch to freeze!"

"These were so tasty! They weren't dry, just the right moistness. I used dried currants instead of raisins, but I also considered using craisins in the future. Either way, they are yummy :)"
