    Mmmm Good! I just made these and the whole house smells delicious. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and added cocoa covered pumpkin seeds and pecans. I forgot the eggs though :( They came out ok, but I can't wait to make again with the egg. - 8/15/10

    very good, although I wasn't able to find "pastry" flour so I had to use regular whole wheat flour. I substituted Hershey "cinnamon" chips for the raisins and it was a great compliment to the recipe giving it that extra spice flavor! - 10/19/11

    Most excellent and very moist despite the lack of oil! Great way to use the Halloween pumpkin I bought but did not carve. I added 1/3 C ground flax seeds for the nutritional benefits. Nothing better than a pumpkin muffin and a cup of coffee in the morning. Mmmmmm. - 11/10/10

  • They were ok but I some how expected something better. It was a pain to find the pastry flour and I had thought it would make it more fluffy rather than having them very dense. - 5/5/12

  • I made these and they were ok. I like pumpkin and didn;t care for the nuts on tops so I'll make without next time, but were good. - 11/5/11

  • These are a new favorite at my house. They were very easy to make (I made some substitutions based on what I had- a flax egg since I was out of eggs, Splenda and some molasses for the brown sugar since my brown sugar was a brick, and I used my own pumpkin pie spice mix). Will definitely make again! - 10/24/11

  • do you have to get the whole wheat pastry flour somewhere special? Tried 2 stores around here and ended up just getting reg. whole wheat flour because none of them said pastry flour. Is it the ones that say "great for bread" or something like that?

    I cook pumpkin in the fall and freeze it in 1 cup amounts. Then just defrost and use. Great, though they do not get very high. Also added some leftover mincemeat once, and it was great. - 5/13/11
