In my quest to lighten my cabinets of all the cans of organic pumpkin I bought a while back, I've been trying to bake more pumpkin items lately. This recipe also takes care of some of the bags of unsweetened coconut I found in the fridge. so it's worked out really well, there too. Oh, plus, they taste great!

they kind of feel like coconut bran muffins to me because of the raisins and the teff flour. not super-sweet. i eat them with my cottage cheese at breakfast sometimes.

thanks for writing!
