Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Makes 10 to 12 muffins
- 2 cups whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 15-ounce can solid-pack pumpkin
- ½ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add pumpkin, 1/2 cup of water, and raisins. Stir until just mixed. Spoon batter into oil-sprayed muffin cups, filling to just below the tops. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until tops of muffins bounce back when pressed lightly. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.
Remove muffins from pan and cool on a rack. Store cooled muffins in an airtight container.
