IntroductionI love pumpkin muffins, and I wanted to create a version with less fat and calories that still tasted good. These muffins turn out moist and full of flavor!

3.5 cups All Purpose Unbleached Flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Allspice
1.5 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Cloves
2 cups Pumpkin puree
1.5 cups White Sugar
0.5 cup Brown Sugar
0.58 cup unsweetened Applesauce
1 cup Vanilla Yogurt (fat free or otherwise - I used 2%)
4 egg whites
1 large egg
2/3 cup Water
1 cup raisins
2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves. In a large bowl, beat together the pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, applesauce, yogurt, egg whites, and egg. Blend the flour mixture into the sugar mixture, alternating with the water, to form a smooth batter. Fold in the raisins. Transfer to the prepared muffin pan.
3. Bake 16 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cool on wire racks. Frost with Cream Cheese icing if you desire.
