Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
(adapted from MoneySavingMom)
- 3 cups whole wheat flour (I used freshly ground hard white wheat)
- ½ cup sucanat
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups pureed pumpkin (or one 16 ounce can)
- 1 cup melted coconut oil (or butter)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together all dry ingredients.
- Add eggs, pumpkin and oil.
- Mix well.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Spoon batter into 24 paper lined muffin cups.
- Bake in a 400° oven for 16-22 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown.
(I prefer either homemade chocolate chips or soy free chocolate chips)
These are easy to put together and make your house smell just like the fall season is supposed to smell. Pumpkin and cinnamon smell awesome. Plus, adding chocolate to a muffin never, ever hurts my feelings. :)
