    I loved these.. but in place of the eggs I used Egg Beaters and in place of the oil, I just used applesauce... in place of all the spices, I just used pumpkin pie spice. Then I froze all of them and they are holding up beautifully- I will definitely be making these again!! - 3/13/07

    I loved this recipe just the way it is and I don't believe in subbing sugar free unless you are diabetic. I like the real stuff and just eat less:) I will try next time 1/2 the oil and make up the rest with applesauce, I think that would be a little bit healthier. Thanks for the great recipe. - 3/11/09

    Delicious! I made mine in a cake pan and sliced into about 20 slices, which turned out great. I'm going to try using whole wheat flour and apple sauce next time to make them healthier. - 9/18/07

    You can replace the skim milk with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, white whole wheat flour for the flours, 4 T Egg Beaters instead of an xl egg, Splenda instead of sugar, and applesauce instead of oil. 1 slice/muffin= 77 cal, 0.5g fat, 12.6g net carbs, 3g fiber, and 3g protein. - 8/19/09

    I agree that applesauce can be used instead of the oil, and I used whole wheat flour. I was also able to get 18 muffins out of the recipe, so the author must have been using some pretty big muffin tins! Haha! I also threw in some dried cranberries instead of the nuts. - 3/15/07

    Very Good. I would try using Applesauce instead of Oil next time. I also used half white half wheat flour. I will make again. The kids loved them and they were a easy make the night before for breakfast. - 6/4/08

    These are excellent muffins, I didn't have canned pumpkin so I used squash, they where a bit loose compared to other muffin batters, but they turned out so moist and light. Excellent - 10/18/08

    I used cupcake tins and got 23 muffins. It was tasty, but maybe not "healthy" in the strictest sense of the word. I may be trying some of the carrot or applesauce substitutions next, but I've saved this recipe. - 11/26/07

    I made this for a friend to celebrate completing a test. Everyone loved them! Wondered about doing sweetner for sugar, not sure how to substitute. Also I was able to make 13 muffins so wondered what the calories were like. Also I can't tell if they added nuts when making the nutritional info. - 3/21/07

    I loved them. Have you tried substituting apple sauce for the oil in them to lower the calorie count? - 3/13/07

    These are VERY good -- The downfall is that they are high in calories -- But if you want to serve something that everyone will rave above--THIS IS IT! - 3/13/07

  • These are really pretty good. You just need to remember it is "muffin" not "cupcake". I also should have filled the muffin tins a little more I had leftover batter that I just put in an old pie tin and now I have a giant flat pumpkin pancake. Very good though. - 10/7/12

  • I'm confused. These look and smell right but have no flavor! Did I do something wrong? I double checked the recipe. Maybe more sugar and pumpkin. Bummer. - 10/17/11

  • I didn't have Allspice or Nutmeg, but I figured it'd still be ok. WRONG. They came out tasting like nothing! They rose well (I only used 1 1/4 tbs of baking powder), were very moist (I used two heaping teaspoons of applesauce instead of oil). I also added a capful of vanilla. Maybe more pumpkin! - 10/17/11
