    I used organic pumpkin and found the finished product much too moist (almost uncooked). I will try it again with regular canned pumpkin. I also added more spice as I found the batter a little bland. I would definitely recommend doing the toothpick test to check for done-ness to avoid underbaking.

    I’ve noticed a lot variation of consistency in canned pumpkin, maybe the brand you’re using is a thicker one. I bet you could just add a bit of water or apple juice.

    Hi Can I substitute with almond flour to make it low carb?

    I doubled the recipe and knew it would be too much for the blendtec to add the dry ingredients to the wet so I just transferred the wet to a kitchen-aid mixer & used the batter blade to incorporate. I always go off-recipe & used carrots in place of the pumpkin, added banana, fresh ginger & some applesauce to make a puree. At the end I also tossed in raw sunflower seeds & dark raisins. Voila! Susie’s variation muffins. I rarely tell people what’s in them until after they’ve consumed several!!
