Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin

Muffins, cupcakes…what’s the difference really?  Frosting?  You could frost these with a nice chocolate ganache and call them cupcakes. Either way, they are tasty and SUPER easy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
1/2 cup oil (will try again with applesauce)
1 3/4 cup flour (I used 1 cup regular and 3/4 white whole wheat flour)
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t ginger
1/2 t cinnamon
3/4 cup chocolate chips (roughly half a bag)

In a bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin puree, oil and eggs.

In another bowl combine dry ingredients and mix together (I use a wisk to lighten the flour and make sure there are no lumps)

Add the dry ingredients to the wet in small amounts, be careful not to overmix.

Add the chocolate chips at the end.

Makes 12 muffins or 2 trays of mini muffins

Bake at 350 for 15-18 mins (less for the mini muffins)


(PS I tweaked this recipe from here.)
