Whole wheat Pumpkin Muffins

While I am stuck on pumpkin this morning...

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup water
3 cups whole wheat flour (get out your wheat grinders)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cloves
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
(opional chocolate chips or crasions/raisons and nuts)

Mix ingredients well. Bake at 400*F for 15-20 minutes or until tops are done.

My kids all like these with chocolate chips. I also use pumpkin pie spice instead of the cloves and nutmeg. Vaughn doesn't think they are sweet enough. They certainly don't taste like the mixes you buy at the store, but I think they are super yummy!
