I didn't think this recipe would go over very well at my house either. Darling Hubby hates anything pumpkin but he did try one when I requested that he take a bite. He ate half a muffin. I gave about half of them to my youngest two daughters, who will eat anything now that they are out on their own and starving! I found out that I really liked these. I added the mini chocolate chips and walnuts. I was going to add golden raisins but when I made my grocery list I didn't buy any because I had a box in my cupboard. When I got them out to use, I was astonished that the golden raisins had turned black. I'm embarrassed to admit that the last time I used golden raisins was 2005. Yuck...they went in the trash.
I also turned the heat down on these to 350 and used my silicone muffin pans for the first time. I baked them about 25 minutes and they came out of those pans without any trouble. No grease needed.
Here they are:
