I have made these without all the spices (didn't have ginger or cloves) and they are still good. You could also probably substitute 1/8 c. honey for the white sugar if you wanted to. Also, I prefer to use mini chocolate chips for muffins but regular size will do if that's all you have.
- 1 c all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/4 c white sugar (or 1/8 c honey)
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger (if desired)
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves (if desired)
- 1 egg
- 1 c pumpkin puree
- 1/2 c orange juice
- 2 tblsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 c chocolate chips (mini is best, regular will do)
- foil baking cups
Combine flours, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices in a large bowl and whisk thoroughly. Make a well in the center and set aside.
In another bowl whisk together the egg, pumpkin, oj, and oil.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring just to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
Line muffin pan with foil baking cups and divide batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups.
I made these the other day as the inaugural baking in my new gas range/oven. Yay!
