Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are delicious and can be served as a snack, breakfast or even dessert if you add enough chocolate chips!Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins are pretty popular around my house these days! I have been loving the chance to make everything pumpkin now that it is officially fall! And of course you must add chocolate to your pumpkin recipes for the ultimate indulgence, right?!

The original recipe called for vegetable oil which I swapped with applesauce and coconut oil and the taste and texture are both still incredible! If you just pretend the sugar isn’t there, these muffins are actually pretty healthy, right?! You can swap the entire amount of oil for applesauce, but when you do this, it does affect the texture quite a bit. I usually try to substitute half of the oil in a recipe with applesauce to help reduce the calories but still get the lighter texture that comes from using oil. Coconut oil is a fabulous oil to use in almost all baking, and in this recipe you can’t taste the coconut flavor at all because of the pumpkin and spices used.
