Pumpkin muffins and chocolate chips

As every year, on the first Sunday of October our regular appointment is held: the Piozzo pumpkin fair.

How can you resist such beauty and goodness?

I love going to buy food specialties, find precious handmade items, photograph autumn patterns but, above all, to go home with my loot and start cooking.

This year I had gnocchi, bread and, of course, a dessert with chocolate chips planned. And in your opinion, which recipe will I ever start from?

These pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins are very quick and simple, we will finish them all for breakfast but they are also ideal for a snack or to finish a pumpkin-based menu.

N.B .: you can make the recipe lactose-free using good almond milk and gluten-free using rice flour.

180 gr of pumpkin pulp cooked in the oven and reduced to puree

130 grams of brown sugar

200 grams of flour for cakes

Half a sachet of vanilla yeast

100 gr of chocolate chips

Preparation: first cook the pumpkin into small pieces in the oven and mash it well with a fork (it takes about 10-15 minutes to cook at 180 degrees). Let it cool down a little.

Mix the eggs with the sugar in a bowl. Add the oil and milk. Incorporate the pumpkin while continuing to mix and the sifted flour with the baking powder. Finally, add the chocolate chips.

Put the dough in the cups and bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Remember to do the toothpick test.

With this dose I filled 12 muffin tins. If you want to make cupcakes, remember that, being smaller, cooking must be reduced to 15 minutes.
