pumpkin carrot nut multigrain muffins

Everyone I mention these muffins to keeps mentioning they want one. I made them up after having leftover pumpkin on the weekend and they turned out well. Luckily I could remember what I put in them and after making them a few more times (we've been inhaling them in mass quantities), I've written the recipe down so I don't forget. After eating one people keep saying they want the here ya go. J and I love them. This recipe makes 12 muffins.

In a big bowl, mix well:
1/4c coconut oil (melted) or regular canola oil
1/4 c water
1 c grated carrot
1 c pureed pumpkin
2/3 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 t salt
1 1/2t pumpkin pie spice (OR 1/2 t each of cinnamon, ginger and cloves)
1/2c chopped walnuts of pecans (whatever you have around -I bet pumpkin seeds would be good too)

In a separate bowl, mix and then stir in to the wet stuff until just mixed:
3/4c multigrain flour
3/4c white flour
1/2t baking soda
2 t baking powder

Bake at 350 for ~20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Don't overbake them...and enjoy!
