Happy Pumpkin Day!
In celebration of Pumpkin Day I made some pumpkin muffins. And because there never seems to be enough chocolate in my life, I added chocolate chips to half the batter. I hope you enjoy these moist, flavorful muffins as much as I do.
2 3/4 cups unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar (I used 1 cup turbinado and 1 cup white sugar)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 (16-ounce) can pumpkin
1 bag Sunspire Bittersweet chocolate chips
Note: I used 1 cup of homemade apple butter instead of the applesauce and spices, and it turned out wonderfully.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices in a large bowl.
Combine eggs, sugar, applesauce, and pumpkin.
Add to dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Bake 18 – 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool on rack.
