Pumpkin is so good for you.. It has a lot of vitman A and it is a veggie.. We all like to sneak veggies in when we can.. These turned out so moist and yummy, that there are only 4 left in the container and it made 16 regular size muffins.. This recipe was found on pintrest and was written by Jessica Sanders.. I have changed it a little, but will give her credit for putting the bug in my ear..
-1/4 cup canola oil
-1 cup flour
-1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 tsp ground cinnamon
-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 cup granulated sugar
-1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
-1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Adjust a rack to the center of your oven. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a muffin tin or if you prefer muffin papers.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, spices, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla. Whisk flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture until well combined, add chocolate chips. Use a spoon to fill the muffin tin with the batter.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean – about 18-20 minutes. Cool muffins in the pan on a cooling rack
