Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins!

Here is yet another pumpkin recipe!  I just love muffins.  They make me feel like I am eating cake for breakfast. 🙂   Growing up in Boston, we had a Dunkin Donuts on every corner.  One of the things I loved there was the pumpkin muffins.  Then one day I looked up the nutrition facts.  They have 600 calories and 26 grams of fat.  Ouch!   These muffins do not so it’s okay to eat more than one!

Meadow and I ate one as soon as they came out of the oven.  Yum!

Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins!

2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 light oil (I used organic canola)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 can pureed pumpkin
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/3 cup chocolate chips (I used carob)

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix wet to dry and scoop into muffin tins.  Bake
for around 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Do anyone of you have a Dunkin Donuts nearby?  We only have a handful here in Texas.
