Pumpkin Muffins

What do you do when you buy too much pumpkin for pumpkin bread?  You make Pumpkin Muffins!  It is not the same recipe.  This one is the pumpkin equivalent of banana bread.  It is also a good source of protein because of the nuts in it.  You can add more or less if you want, but the amount that we list is pretty good.  This was rated best ever! from my mom, very good from my dad, yummy from me, and yuck from my sister.  She does not like nuts, so she instantly did not like this.  I thought it was good.  It made really good breakfasts, too!
