Healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are the perfect breakfast or snack! These low sugar muffins sweetened with applesauce are a nice alternative to sugar-laden holiday treats.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease muffin pan or add paper muffin liners.
Beat eggs, pumpkin, applesauce, maple syrup, sugar, and oil in a large bowl until smooth.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix thoroughly, then fold in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin cups almost full with muffin batter. Bake at 400 F for 15-17 minutes. Check them a minute or two early to check for doneness - don't overcook. Cool for several minutes before enjoying.
Yield: 2 dozen muffins. These are even better the next day!
