1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly spray minimuffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Whisk flour, baking powder, 11/2 teaspoons cinnamon and salt in a large mixer bowl until combined. Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fill each minimuffin cup with 1 rounded tablespoon of batter, or until about half full.
3. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack until cook enough to handle.
