I just found this recipe a few days ago in a local magazine and had to try it. It has dried cranberries (Crasins) as well. I think it would also be great with chocolate chips, but what is not better with chocolate chips? The Crasins are in there, but kind of hide in the pumpkin.
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Canned Pumpkin
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice (I used 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon)
2 1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Dried Cranberries (I think more of these would have been better.
This recipe made 24 full muffins.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together. Add the pumpkin and oil and mix well. Stir baking soda, salt, spices, and flour in. Fold in cranberries. Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full and bake at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for five minutes before removing to wire rack.
My muffin liners were in the dollar section of Target last year. They are silicone and reusable and don't even need to be sprayed (but I still do a little.)
