Healthy pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins

Each week I try to bake a sweet bread for H’s lunches. With fall in the air (not yet here, but somewhere in the USA), I wanted to make something that was just of the season! So I found this recipe from Very Best Baking and decided to give it a try. It uses whole wheat flour, and I cut the oil back and halved the chocolate chips, enough to give us flavor, but not enough to ruin our calorie count. This is a healthy breakfast muffin sure to please!

I also submitted it to Joelen’s Culinary Adventurs Fall Foods and Red Wine event! Check out her blog and all her monthly blogging events!

I used my blender to mix all of the ingredients, minus the chips. I went in order of how it should be mixed, blended, and then added the next step. Stir in chips, pour into muffin tin. Cuts the prep time in half. Start to finish about 40 mins with gathering ingredients, and clean up (do while baking!) SO QUICK!







PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease thirty-six 2 1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups.
COMBINE all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Combine eggs and sugar in large bowl. Add pumpkin and oil; mix well. Stir in flour mixture until moistened. Stir in morsels. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in pans on wire racks for 5 minutes; remove from pans.
