Do you ever find yourself left with a half used can of pumpkin puree and aren’t quite sure what to do with it? I found myself in the same situation recently and decided to make the kids mini pumpkin raisin muffins. This is such an easy recipe which comes out moist and not too sweet, and can be prepared in one bowl. I brought them to share on the school playground after class and they were polished off as fast as it took to make them.

Do you have any quick one bowl muffin recipes you stand by?
