"This is a delicious pumpkin muffin that is very moist, with pumpkin seeds mixed into the batter. A great twist on pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin seeds are also very good sprinkled on top of the muffins before baking. I also add about two tablespoons of flax seed meal when making the recipe. If the batter seems too thick, more applesauce can be added to achieve the desired consistency."
