50% of Your Daily Vitamin A Needs....

... IN A MUFFIN!

A Chocolately muffin at that.

This muffin has even less calories than the previous "autumn muffins" and came out to be moist, fluffly and satisfying.  When I was making the batter, it looked look chocolate mousse. Though, I'm going to need your help in coming up for a name. Any suggestions???



Ingredients

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup flour
1 serving Ghiradelli 60% Cocoa chips
2 eggs
3/4 pumpkin puree
1 medium ripe banana
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp organic sour cream
1/4 cup Ghiradelli semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp cinnammon
1 tsp vanilla essence

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F


Melt the butter in the microwave ( preferebly a medium to large size mixing bowl)
Stir in the 60% cocoa chocolate chips until melted
Make sure the mixture is cool and whisk in two eggs ( if it is two warm, the eggs will cook, and u'll have choclate scrambled eggs)
Add the vanilla essence, pumpkin and banana and whisk
Next, stir in the sugar and sour cream
Finally, slowly add in the dry ingredients( flour, Baking powder/soda, pumpkin spice and cinnamon) .
Slowly stir until well incorperated, it should look light and fluffly ( mousse-like)
In the end, mix in the semisweet chocolate chips.

Place the batter in a muffin pan
Top each muffin with a few chocolate chips ( optional)

Bake for about 40-50 minutes checking on the muffins once the smell begins to permeate your kitchen.

Enjoy.... and please help me pick a name!! Thanks hehe
