Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
A couple weeks ago I cooked and pureed the pumpkins we had gotten at the farm. It ended up taking me a while, as my blender could only handle a small amount of pumpkin at a time. I ended up with about 14 cups of puree from my two small-to-medium sized pumpkins, which I was pleased with. I put it all in the freezer, but pulled some out the other day and made some muffins today! Homemade pumpkin puree doesn't have as strong of a flavor as canned pumpkin, but they were still delicious - even with mostly whole wheat flour and not much sugar! It is so satisfying to use ingredients that you prepared yourself - you know they're fresh and healthy!
