If you’re not a fan of ginger, nutmeg, or cloves, feel free to leave them out or adjust the amounts to your liking. You can also add in some chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or raisins for extra texture and flavor.
If you don’t have vegetable oil, you can use canola oil or melted butter instead. You can also use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar for a richer flavor. And if you don’t have pumpkin puree, you can use mashed sweet potato or butternut squash instead.
Store these pumpkin muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
