So apparently Throws Like A Girl is turning into a food blog. Heh. Anyway, I’m constantly struggling to find things that my children will eat for breakfast. So far their favorite is ramen noodles, but that is a story for another day. Not to mention the amount of sodium makes me convulse… Anyway, today I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I adapted a recipe from here:

Who adapted her recipe from here:

Money Saving Mom

It’s like playing recipe telephone…

So here’s my version:

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

Mix the following in a large bowl:

4 eggs
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup fat free plain yogurt
1/2 cup no sugar added applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil

In a separate bowl whisk:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix the dry ingredients with the wet and spoon into greased muffin cups. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 18 minutes. Makes about 36 standard size muffins.

The major changes I made were cutting the sugar in half, replacing some of the oil with applesauce, and using yogurt instead of milk. I just happen to have a lot of yogurt because I made some yesterday! In my crockpot! 🙂
