Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
These are my all time favorite pumpkin muffins. I make them every year. This is a lighter version substituting applesauce for oil. This recipe makes 24 muffins. I often cut it in half, otherwise I would eat way too many of them!
These are from Food.com
1/2 cup oil ( or substitute applesauce for this too)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 (16 ounce) cans pumpkin
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces semisweet mini chocolate chips
Mix first 5 ingredients together; separately, mix dry ingredients.
Blend the two mixtures together, fold in chips.
Generously fill 24 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. (I have found the paper liners don't work very well.).
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 16-20 minutes.
