Delicious combination of pumpkin and chocolate in a morning muffin...

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups pure canned pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 18 muffin tin cups with nonstick spray.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (through pie spice).
3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, applesauce, oil and vanilla until well blended. Stir in dry ingredients and mix only until combined (do not over mix). Gently fold in chocolate chips.

*Use an ice cream scoop with a spring handle to scoop the batter into the muffin tins- it's so easy and no mess.
