Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Makes 2 dozen.

The white whole-wheat flour used in the recipe has all the fiber and vitamins of regular whole wheat but with a milder favor. King Arthur, Gold Medal and Trader Joe’s are three national brands.

4 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 15-ounce can pumpkin
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups white whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp each ground cinnamon, ginger and cloves
¼ tsp salt
1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Liberally spray 12-cup muffin pans with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil until smooth. With a rubber spatula, blend in flours, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt: do not over mix. Fold in raisins.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes.
