If peanut butter and chocolate are soulmates, pumpkin and chocolate are the people no one knew would be friends and then got along famously and became inseparable. This recipe for pumpkin muffins as the extra added bonus of chocolate chips. As my roommate and I said, more sugar never hurt anyone. We then revised it to no one ever complains about more sugar.
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup whole wheat flour (if you want, otherwise white I’m sure would work just fine)
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup pumpkin
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup buttermilk (milk is fine too)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
In a big bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Whisk together the egg, butter, pumpkin and buttermilk.
Fold wet into dry, and stir until just combined.
Add chocolate chips – be careful not to overmix.
Pour batter into greased muffin tins. (It makes about twelve)
Bake in a 375 oven for 25-30 minutes.
