Mmm! Mmm! Muffins!

Here’s a terrific recipe for pumpkin muffins that’s sure to be a hit Thanksgiving morning. They taste and smell sinfully delicious, but they’ve only got 159 calories each — so you’ll have plenty of room for turkey and all the trimmin’s later in the day! Truth is, these muffins are good enough to be a part of your healthy, whole-grain diet any time of year.

1½ cups white whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup honey
3 tablespoons canola oil
½ cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a large bowl, mix the flour, spice, baking soda, and baking powder. In a small bowl, combine the egg, pumpkin, honey, and oil. Stir until well blended. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir just until mixed. Fold in the raisins, and ladle the batter into the paper liners. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Happy Thanksgiving!
