Reviews for Nutty Pumpkin Muffins
"These were moist & delicious & easy to make. I added 1/4 tsp. each of nutmeg & ground ginger, and put pieces of the chopped walnuts on the top of each muffing before baking. It made them more attractive. Next time I will substitute Splenda for part of the sugar and applesauce for the oil to reduce the calories."
"I replaced the oil with Smuckers Baking healthy oil substitute and the sugar with Splenda Blend for baking. This saved 140 calories calories and about 10 grams of fat, reducing the calorie count to 168 per muffin. I also added some nutmeg and cloves in addition to the cinnamon. They were delicious, definitely a keeper."
"I switched the oil with applesauce, added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and allspice.They turned out wonderful. My family loves pumpkin cookies this recipe will be added as a pumpkin favorite.Angie Rensing"
