Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 cup flour (or a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat, spelt, etc.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4-6 tablespoons applesauce or other puree
1/4-1/3 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup egg substitute (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
chocolate chips, as desired
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips, Mix well.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (puree, pumpkin, egg substitute, and vanilla extract). Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir until completely blended.
3. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon batter into muffin tins or cups. Place in the oven for about 15-20 minutes (until they appear done and feel firm). For best results, enjoy while they are still warm and the chips are still melty!
