Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins #SundaySupper

The #SundaySupper event went Orange today.  Pam, from The Meltaways, is hosting this great “All Things Orange” Event.  There are all kinds of great fall foods that are orange; pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots and more.  But I am sure you could have guess what I would have picked, even before you read the title of this post.  Pumpkin!!  I am kind of obsessed lately.

So not only could you have guessed pumpkin, but knowing me you probably could have guessed muffins too.  I am realizing that I am kind of predictable.  But this is a healthy muffins recipe (relatively speaking).  There is less than 2 Tbls of oil in this whole thing, and I used whole wheat flour!  So you don’t have to feel guilty about having one of these little guys for breakfast or a snack.

Muffins always go over well with my 7 year old.  But he is obsessed with pumpkin just as much as I am, so he loved these.  I still have some in the freezer, which makes for a great treat after school.  Plus, you can never go wrong when you add chocolate chips.  If you wanted to skip the chocolate, walnuts or pecans would be great.  Even raisins would go well in here, so have fun!

Cook time:
Total time:
 
Healthy version of homemade pumpkin muffins with lots of chocolate chips. Perfect to have in the freezer for a busy morning or an after school snack.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ⅔ cup apple sauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 Tbls + 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ⅔ cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with non stick spray, or liners.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Whisk until combined. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, pumpkin, apple sauce, oil and vanilla until well combined. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, and mix until just combined (be careful not to over mix). Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffins tins. Bake for 15-18 minutes. If you insert a tester it should come out clean. Remove from muffin tin, and cook on a wire rack.
