On Monday, in anticipation for our very busy Tuesday, I baked muffins. The boys had some friends over to play and when they were hungry for a snack started munching on them. Well, needless to say after 9 people try a batch of muffins I did not have enough left over for breakfast the next morning and had to make another batch. This was the first time we tried these and they were wonderful.
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cups chocolate chips (optional )
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix pumpkin, sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture into greased muffin pans filling 3/4 full. Bake 20-25 minutes.
