Pumpkin Chocolate Chip/Oat Muffins

My family loves pretty much anything pumpkin flavored. So combining that yumminess with my favorite item to make for breakfast, MUFFINS, just seemed destined by the kitchen Gods. I don't have a picture because they don't last long enough for pretty presented pictures. But they have been give 5/5 stars by everyone who has had them and loves pumpkin like we do, so give them a try and let me know what you think. You can use canned pumpkin...or my favorite, steamed pumpkin that has been lightly blended in the food processor. The flavor isn't quite as strong as the canned stuff.

4 eggs
2/3 c. water
2c. pumpkin
½ c. canola oil
½ c. applesauce, unsweetened
3c. sugar, granulated

Sift together and add…
2tsp. baking soda
2 ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2c. quick oats
12 oz bag chocolate chips, I prefer semi-sweet

Mix both wet and dry ingredients together and put into muffin tins prepared with non-stick spray.

Sprinkle with mixture of…
1/2c. oats (or chopped walnuts/pecans)
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Bake in a 350 degree-preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Remove for muffin tins to cool. Be careful if eating right away, the chocolate chips will be melty and HOT!

Happy Autumn!
