Breakfast Pumpkin Muffins

Makes 12

1 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C white flour
6 Tablespoons white sugar
1/2 C oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 C pumpkin puree (mine came from a can)
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t allspice
1 C chocolate chips

Combine sugar, oil, eggs, and pumpkin. Sift flours, baking soda, and spices.* Add wet to dry and mix until incorporated. Do not beat the daylights out of these (or any muffins, please, ever.) Add chocolate chips.

Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. (They might look wet still if you just peek in the oven. Take them out and stick a fork in. They have a very wet appearance and if you wait for them to look dry/done, you're going to have a disgusting burned muffin.)

*Lazy Chef Confession: I always do my wet ingredients, then throw the dry ingredients over them and sort of stir the dry ingredients around with a fork or whisk on top of the wet. Then I just mix them in to the wet. That's right--I do not use 2 bowls for wet and dry, and I do not sift. Ever. Thank you. I feel better having gotten that off my chest.
