Pumpkin Bread OR Muffins

Pumpkin season is here (although I'm always in the mood for some of these)! Here's my favorite pumpkin bread/muffin recipe (pictured are mini muffins using "fall" festive muffin cups. This recipe is great for buffet entertaining. Feel free to add some chocolate chips to make it like a dessert!

Whisk or mix together:
4 eggs
2 cups pumpkin
¾ cup light olive oil
1-2 cups brown sugar (1 is enough for me)
3 1/3 cup flour, (can use half or all wheat)
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Bread: Line two large loaf pans with waxed paper (or grease well), and fill with batter. Bake at 350 F for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Once removed from the oven, shake loose from pan and place on cooling rack. You can also make 4 small loaves, Bake at 325 for 45 minutes.
Muffins: Bake 350 for 20 minutes.
Mini Muffins:
