Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here's another Tuesday muffin recipe (last week's muffin recipe). I think this might be becoming a thing :)  This week I was desperate for some fall spirit as we say goodbye to summer "officially" today. It's still pretty warm in the 80's here, but we picked up a few pie pumpkins at the apple orchard last week, and I couldn't help myself. It may still feel like mid-summer, but the days are getting darker faster and the tips of some of the trees are turning some red and orange colors, so we know the cool down is close. And if baking some pumpkins brings in the fall air a little sooner, then so be it! This season of in-between, the changes are right at our doorstep and you can literally feel the energy of change coming. You may even sense it in your heart and minds, the energy is so strong this time of year to clean out and start settling to get ready for the comfort of wintertime.
So many of my allergy-friendly recipes have the same ingredients. I try to make recipes as simple as I can, and even versatile to use in a variety of ways. You could make this recipe into a cake, you could even try pancakes. It is intimidating to start baking GF (or allergy-friendly), but if you have a few good recipes or guides you may find that you are more willing to take the scary leap. So I hope you find some support with these recipes. Or at the least some hope that there is some great treats out therefore even you :) Enjoy and much love xoxo
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe
{gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nut and seed free}

1 cup of certified GF oat flour (I grind my own out of rolled oats)
1/3 cup of rice flour
1/4 cup of tapioca flour
1 ts. of baking soda
1 ts. of sea salt
2 ts. of baking powder (Hain brand corn-free)
1 1/2 ts. of ground cinnamon
1 1/2 ts. of ground ginger
1/2 ts. of ground cloves
1/2 ts. of ground cardamon
1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup of black strap molasses (or maple syrup)
1/3 cup of coconut milk beverage
1 TB of apple cider vinegar
1 cup of fresh pumpkin puree (I baked my own in the oven)
1/3 cup of soft or melted coconut oil
add1 cup of mini chocolate chips (enjoy life brand)

Mix all the wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and then add all the dry ingredients. Save the chocolate chips for last and just fold them in. Pour into 12 muffin tins, and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes.  These muffins need to cool for at least 15 minutes to avoid tongue burning :)
