Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins!!

This is the first Thanksgiving that Matt and I won't be with our families.  It's very sad, since Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays!  We were planning on just going out on a nice date to celebrate, but some of our church family has invited us to celebrate with them tomorrow!!

I wanted to make some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to bring to their house, and thought I should share the recipe here!
Ingredients
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup applesauce*
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour**
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

*I use applesauce instead of oil to make it "healthier", but you can use vegetable oil if you like! 
**If you use self-rising flour, just omit the baking powder, baking soda, and salt

Directions

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2) Grease muffin pan or use muffin liners.

3) In a large bowl, mix the sugar, oil, eggs,pumpkin and water.

4) In another bowl, mix together the baking flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.


5) Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir in the chocolate chips.


6) Fill your muffin cups 2/3 full with batter and bake for 20 minutes.

7) Remove from the oven, let cool, and ENJOY!! I dare you to eat just one...
