Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins In case you haven’t figured out by now, I love pumpkin. And I don’t just love it for the taste, I also love all of the Vitamin A that I sneak into my family’s diet!

Lately I’ve been making pumpkin butter, light and crustless pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!

I found a wonderful recipe for them, but it wasn’t quite healthy enough for what I know will be the Little Buddy and Little Stinker’s breakfast some days.  So, I did some tweaking until it was not only fairly healthy, but very tasty!

Here’s what you will need:

Dry ingredients

2 cups whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur’s Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour)

1 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Wet Ingredients:

1 egg

3 egg whites (or 3/4 cup egg substitute)

1 (15 oz) can pure pumpkin

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup canola oil

Mix in at the end:

1 cup chocolate chips

collapsable measuring cups

Get started making these delicious pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!!!

1.  In one bowl, combine the dry ingredients.

2.   Combine all of the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

3.  Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix only until moistened.

    Delicious! I think I’d just be so tempted to add cream cheese frosting and make them into cupcakes. :)
