Note: I used walnuts, but I didn't have a full 3/4 cup, probably only about 1/2 a cup. This would be awesome with chocolate chips, too. Of course, what isn't better with chocolate chips?? These are amazingly light and fluffy.
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped cashews or walnuts (optional? I think not)
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients - eggs, oil, water, pumpkin
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients - flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet and incorporate. Add nuts (and chocolate chips?), stir.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done. Do not overbake. Cool on wire rack.
