Pumpkin Muffins

I got this recipe a few years ago from a cousin who's made health and fitness her life's work. They really are a delicious and moist muffin, and chock-full of big, beautiful walnuts! I keep them in my freezer during the fall months for a quick and healthy pick-me-up during the day.

1 1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. olive oil
3 eggs
1 can pumpkin
1/2 C. water
1 C. whole wheat flour
1 C. white flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cloves
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 C. walnuts

Mix ingredients in order given and bake in greased tins at 400° for 15-17 minutes.
