Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (Gluten Free)

It has taken a lot of bombs to get this recipe acceptable to share. I brought it out at a recent Christmas party and they were a hit. After a number of my guest asked for the recipe so I shared it with them and then  I decided to share it with everyone on my blog too. I hope you enjoy them!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yield: 8-12 regular muffins and 12-18 mini muffins
½ heaping cup sliced organic unblanched almonds
1 ½ cups organic Oat flour
¼ cup organic brown rice flour
1/3 heaping cup of organic raw sugar (can cut this in half or omit)
1 ½ TBSP Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp baking soda
¼ heaping tsp baking powder
¼ tsp sea salt
3 large organic eggs
2 cups organic plain pumpkin (whole 16 ounce can)
1/3 Safflower oil
1 ½ cup mini chocolate chips
Check consistency, if too wet you will need to add some more flour, try brown first.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Put almonds on a baking sheet or pie pan and bake about 5 minutes, just until lightly browned; watch carefully so they do not burn. Slide almonds off the baking sheet so they cool quickly.
Grease muffin cups or use foil or paper baking cups.
Thoroughly mix flour, sugar, pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Break eggs into another bowl, Add pumpkin and oil and whisk until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds. Pour over the dry ingredients and fold just until moistened. If the batter is too thick add 1-2 TBSP of water until a little easier to stir.
Scoop  batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 25-35 minutes for regular muffins and about 15-25 minutes mini or until puffed and springy to the touch in the center. Watch closely so they don’t get over cooked and too dry. Turn onto a rack to cool. Cover with a dishtowel to keep the moisture in. Once cooled wrap in a plastic bag and keep one or two days to enhance the flavor before serving. Great to freeze. Can be reheated before serving.
