    These muffins are my favorite! They are also relatively healthy, made with whole wheat flour. They can be made vegan by replacing the chocolate chips with carob chips. I adapted this recipe from the Vegan Lunch Box web site

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    muffins

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray a nonstick muffin tin sprayed well with nonstick spray, or line the tin with paper muffin cups and spray the cups with nonstick spray. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Put the pumpkin, water, canola oil, ground flax seed, and vanilla in a blender and process on high for at least one minute, until light in color and well-blended. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, kosher salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the pumpkin mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon or large spatula until well-blended. If the mixture seems a little dry, add extra water. Fold in the chocolate chips or carob chips and nuts.
    4. 4
      Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, distributing evenly to make 12 muffins. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with sugar, if desired.
    5. 5
      Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a cake tested inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then use a spatula to gently lift each muffin from the muffin tin. Finish cooling on a wire rack.

      These are so awesome. My GF was actually disappointed that they were healthy because she wanted to feel bad about eating them. I did have to add a little bit more water to get the mix right but other than that I followed the recipe exactley as written. I think next time I might add more spice to the mix, like some all spice or ginger to really bring out the pumpkin taste.

      You can make it a bit healthier by substituting apple sauce for sugar. Still is sweet and moist, but less calories and healthier.
