Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins from The Flourishing Mother 10/01/07
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 (15 ounce) can of pumpkin
1 1/2 cups canola oil
3 cups all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
2 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tins or use paper liners.
2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl, and mix in sugar, pumpkin, and oil.
3. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Blend in the egg and pumpkin mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer to the muffin pans.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pans, and cool on a wire rack.

Reese LOVES to pour all the ingredients in and stir, but here he palmed a mouthful of chocolate chips and snuck them in.

I stole this trick from JessieLeigh at Parenting the Tiniest of Miracles. Put whatever you need to spray with cooking spray (I used Baker's Joy with flour mixed in) on the open door of your dishwasher. When you close it up and run the dishwasher all the overspray is washed away and none is on your work surface.

Gus watched us (except here he's watching Daddy) load the muffin tin with my muffin scoop thingy. Reese thought it was pretty fun.

Here he's saying/signing "more, more, more"

I told him no muffins unless I get a good smile.

We made some super yummy pumpkin muffins.
