Straight from the King Arthur Flour test kitchens, these muffins are one of my favorite pumpkin recipes because they're low calorie, low fat and high in fiber. Thanks to: http://healthycooking.suite101.com/article.cfm/pumpkin_bran_muffins

Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Muffins

2 cups pumpkin
1 cup all-bran cereal
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup (3-1/2 oz.) sugar
2 tbsp. (1 oz.) brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 cups (5 3/8 oz.) unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup (6 oz.) raisins

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Muffins

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, bran cereal, butter, and sugars. Stir in the eggs and buttermilk. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, spices, baking soda and baking powder. Stir into the pumpkin mixture, then stir in the raisins. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the batter for 4 hours or overnight.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease or line the wells of a muffin pan with papers. Scoop the batter into the pan, using a heaping 1/4 cup of batter for each. Sprinkle the tops with sugar if desired, then bake in the preheated oven for 25-28 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for five minutes before taking them out of the pan to finish cooling on a rack.

  3. Yield: 12 muffins.
