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:
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
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
