These were great. I didn't add the nuts or raisins because we are making these to take along on a Thanksgiving road trip and I wanted to eliminate the
"extras" for less mess in the van. That being said, these are wonderful all by them self's, they would be even more delicious with raisins, apples, chocolate chips or some other favorite. I made fresh pumpkin so I didn't feel wasteful with the 1 1/2 cup of pumpkin as some do with a 15 oz can so they add all of it. I did use apple sauce in place of the oil (I've always heard you could but never had because I never had any on hand that wasn't eaten) The Applesauce was great. I used a table spoon of pumpkin spice just because I didn't want to mess with the other measurements. My first batch I for got to put put in the baking POWDER, they were still good, but the next batch I remembered and they were bigger and little less dense I also cut the sugar down by 1/2 cup and they are still great, next time I'll go farther by 1 cup, especially if i add chocolate chips or something else sweet.. We make ours in Mini muffins (easier eating for little ones and travel worthy) Bake at 325F for 18-20minuets. yummy! thanks so much for this recipe.
