Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Sweet Potato Muffins - Finding Joy in My Kitchen* 

3/4 C white sugar

1/4 C brown sugar

1/8 C applesauce

1/4 C oil

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/4 C whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. ginger

1/8 tsp. cloves

1/3 C milk

1/2 C sweet potato puree

1/2 C dark chocolate chips {or craisins}

Begin by mixing together the dry ingredients {flour, spices, salt, and baking soda} in a bowl.  

Combine the egg, sweet potato puree, milk, oil, applesauce and sugars together in a second bowl.  

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just moist. 

Then, stir in your chocolate chips or craisins.  

Scoop into lightly greased muffin tins and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.  

Check for done-ness by sticking a toothpick in one of the muffins -- if it comes out clean, they're done!
