Whole Wheat Pumpkin {with or without Chocolate Chips} Muffins

Love these muffins! The addition of whole wheat flour helps with making them healthier. Add in chocolate chips to make them even better!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins

1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (make your own here)
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup chocolate chips, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. If you don't have pumpkin pie spice you can use this link to make your own. I hadn't used it before and now that I know about it, I'm always going to use it! Less measuring!! In another bowl, melt butter. Then combine pumpkin with the butter. Add pumpkin mixture and eggs, one at a time until mixture is incorporated.  If you want to use chocolate chips, gently stir them in now.

Spoon mixture into 12 muffin cups lined with paper or sprayed with nonstick spray.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
