Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

This recipe is made with a vitamix blender, but could very well be made in a mixer.  I love my vitamix and use it for many things.



Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 large eggs
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 cup pumpkin, either freshly cooked or canned
1/4 cup skim milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly coat muffin pan with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
Place eggs, oil, pumpkin, milk and sugar into the Vitamix wet blade container, set to variable 1, turn on machine and slowly increase speed to variable 5.  Blend for only 10 seconds
or place in a mixing bowl and mix well.
In another bowl combine salt, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, flour and chocolate chips
Pour the pumpkin mixture into bowl of dry ingredients.  Mix by hand just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Spoon into prepared muffin pans, filling each cup 3/4 full
Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool.
It makes a dozen muffins.
