Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chunks Muffins

 As i told earlier,being a member of Baking Partners we get three different recipes for our every month's challenge, obviously we can bake anything from those three recipes, i have already posted an incredible Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcake with orange cheese cream frosting suggested by Priya. Coming to this fabulous looking muffins, it was suggested by Reshmi of Easy Cook from Joy of Baking. Actually this muffins goes for all purpose flour,chocolate chips but i went for whole wheat flour and finely chopped dark chocolate bar.

These muffins came out extremely soft and quite addictive, chocolate chunks in this muffins brings a wonderful texture while having this muffins and obviously all the spice powder used in this muffins completely masked the smell of the pumpkin puree. I prepared my pumpkin puree myself, by cooking them in boiling water and pureed once they get cooled without any water. You can also use canned pumpkin puree for making this muffins, definitely you guys have to try this muffins atleast once.

2cups Whole wheat flour
1/2tsp Baking soda
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4tsp Ginger powder
1/4tsp Cloves powder
1/4tsp Nutmeg powder
1/2tsp Salt
1/2cup Butter (room temperature)
1cup Sugar
2nos Large eggs
3/4cup Pumpkin puree
1tsp Vanilla extract
1cup Finely chopped dark chocolate chunks

Preheat the oven to 350F, line the muffin cups with paper liners and keep aside.

Sift the flour,baking soda,baking powder, spice powders and salt and keep aside.

In an another bowl,beat the butter and sugar together until they turns fluffy, add the eggs one at a time and beat well.

Beat in the vanilla extract,pumpkin puree. Fold in the flour mixture,chocolate chunks gently and mix with a spatula,dont overmix.

Fill the muffin cups with this batter, bake in middle rack for 20minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool completely and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
