Jumbo muffins with pumpkin for added fiber.
Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (220 grams) – weigh or spoon and sweep
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 8 oz canned pumpkin (about a cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 6 jumbo muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Stir the brown sugar around in a second bowl and mash out any lumps. Stir in the pumpkin, eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix well. Pour the dry mixture into the pumpkin mixture and stir a few strokes, then pour the melted butter in and stir (never over-beat muffin batter) until blended.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees F. Divide batter equally among muffin cups and bake for 23-26 minutes or until a toothpick or chopstick inserted in center comes out clean.

You can make these as regular size muffins as well. Check them at 18 minutes.
