Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Blend the orange juice, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and coconut sugar until smooth.
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients but don't overstir. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips, if using.
  4. Distribute the batter equally among 12 silicone muffin cups or a greased muffin tin. Paper cups aren't recommended as oil-free muffins tend to stick to the paper.
  5. Bake the muffins for 20-25 min until golden at the top. Let them cool completely.
