Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
3/4 cup agave or honey
1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup coconut oil or melted butter
2/3 cup milk
15 oz. pumpkin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a muffin pan with oil or butter.
Mix agave and egg until blended. Stir in remaining wet ingredients and combine. Then mix in dry ingredients making sure not to over-mix. Add chocolate chips.
Drop batter into muffin pan about 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes until a knife or toothpick inserted comes out clean. Ovens vary so check the muffins at about 20 minutes.
