Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄3 cup almond milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3⁄4 cup Kroger® Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt
  • 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a standard 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners and spray with nonstick cooking spray in each liner.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin, vanilla, almond milk, egg and yogurt. Pour mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Fill prepared muffin tin ¾ full of batter.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow muffins to cool in tin, then remove to a wire rack to continue cooling. Prepare a cooled muffin tin with paper liners and cooking spray, then fill with the remaining batter and bake, just as before.
  • Serve and store leftovers in an airtight container.
