I have a confession to make. I don’t really like pumpkin. Or squash. {I know, it’s sad.}

At least, I don’t like them by themselves. But pair pumpkin with chocolate chips, and I’ll gladly eat it right up ;)

Maybe you’re like this too, or maybe it’s your kids who aren’t big fans. Either way, I’m fairly certain everyone will at least try my Partly Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. And hopefully, they’ll become a favorite for your family just like they have for mine!

I used half whole wheat and less sugar than the original recipe, which I got from a friend a number of years ago. I also substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of some of the oil. Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups whole wheat or whole white wheat flour

1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour

Fold in 1 1/2 to 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
