Walnut Raisin Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Walnut Raisin Pumpkin Spice Muffins

These pumpkin spice muffins are flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, and are studded with raisins and walnut pieces. The craggy tops hide a soft and flavourful crumb which tastes just like Thanksgiving. Serve these with a cup of cold milk or a mug of tea on a blustery fall day.

Ryan made a delicious pumpkin pie for my family’s Thanksgiving dinner, but the pie recipe only used 2 cups of canned pumpkin pie, leaving 1 1/3 cups left in the can. We obviously didn’t want to throw it away, so we made these delicious walnut raisin pumpkin spice muffins!
