Pumpkin Mini Muffins (with spooky Halloween option)

Hey folks!  This is a remix of the (gigantic) Warm Spicy Pumpkin Bread recipe that started this blog almost exactly a year ago.  I cut it in half, pared down the ingredient list, and baked it in teeny tiny muffin tins.  They're tasty little muffins, low in oil and not too much sugar, though  I suspect the sugar could be cut down to 3/4 or even 1/2 a cup.  Next time.   The motivation for making these was a Spooky Eyeball Mini Cupcake recipe from VegNews.  I wanted to make some spooky eyeball treats for a Halloween party tonight, but didn't want to put it on top of sugary white cupcakes.  Photos below...  Enjoy!
