    Delicious! I added 6oz of low fat cottage cheese to ramp up the protein in this recipe, and it worked out pretty well. Just like sour cream in sinful muffins, cottage cheese made them moist-er. - 4/22/09

    For those of you that prefer a little chocolate fix, the walnuts can be traded for a 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips for about the calorie count according to my calculation on the recipe calculator here. Yummy either way. - 2/23/08

    I love these! They taste just like pumpkin bread and are very moist unlike a lot of muffins. I only cooked mine for 15-17 minutes, so you might want to test your oven out the first time you make them. - 5/15/07

    I love these muffins. I substituted sunflowers seeds for the walnuts. And I got more than 12 muffins from this recipe. Will make again. - 3/22/09

    Awesome! I made this recipe as mini muffins (made 48) and baked them for 10 minutes. My 3 year old loved them. Mini muffin just right when you want something sweet but not a lot of calories. Thank you for this recipe I will make it often! - 3/18/09
