    I love these muffins, but make them slightly different. I use 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup nonfat milk and add 1 egg. It doesn't change the calorie count all that much, but the egg improves the texture. - 3/29/08

    I've been making these for years in the form of cookies. I simply mix a can of pumpkin with a spice cake mix. Drop one tablespoon at a time onto a baking stone and cook 15 minutes. My whole family loves them. Sometimes I'll add a few chopped nuts if we're in the mood for more texture. - 2/1/10

    This is a great recipe - I modified it slightyl with 1/2c water and 1/2c natural applesauce - they came out perfectly moist and were a big hit at the family b-day party - I already have requests to make more! - 10/9/08

    I use one egg white for added protein as well as 1/2 shredded carrot and 3T chopped raisins. These are fablulous and all my kids and their friends love them and they are mostly healthy. I want to find an organic boxed spice cake mix to use instead of the regular brands. - 5/12/08

    These were filling and pretty nutritious since I needed something I could grab and go. They were easy to make, too! Personally, I think that you should rate the recipes based on taste and nutritional value and keep your opinion on "instant stuff" to yourself. Not all of us eat all-natural food. - 3/14/07
