Serves: 12
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Occasion: Halloween
Effort: Easy

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1 tbs. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

1 egg

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup milk

3/4 cup raisins

1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
 
How to Prepare:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Butter the insides and top of a regular-sized (1/3 cup) muffin pan.

Thoroughly combine the first 8 ingredients.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Beat in the brown sugar, then stir in the pumpkin, oil and milk until well mixed.

Mix the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined. Don't overmix. Stir in the raisins and all but 2 tablespoons of the walnuts.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, then sprinkle the remaining walnuts on top of the muffins. Bake 15 - 17 min., or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Let sit 2 min. before removing from pan. Serve warm or at room temperature, not hot.
