Tasty Tuesday. Pumpkin and choc chip muffins

Pumpkin and Choc chip muffins from Michelle.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.
3 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
8 eggs
3 cups pumpkin
1 cup water
6 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons ground cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups semisweet mini morsels


Preheat the oven to 400*. Grease and flour muffin pan or use paper liners. (I just PAM it)Mix sugar, oil, eggs. Add pumpkin and water. In separate bowl mix together the baking flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt. Add wet mixture and stir in chocolate chips.Fill Muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

These muffins are so delicious. I made 120 mini muffins and they are all gone. I thought I would have enough for the week but I will have to make some more tomorrow.

I thought the fat content would be a bit to high for Tom (our diabetic child) but the dietician said it was fine. The sugar content is a bit high so we will be substituting a cup of choc chips for 1 cup of dates and putting in one cup of splenda and two cups of sugar with the next batch.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
