Whip up some healthy pumpkin muffins

With this fall weather, I start dreaming of baking with pumpkins and apples. To cap off last weekend’s fun, my daughter put on her fanciest dress and insisted on baking. Love her!

I searched my pantry and saw a can of pure pumpkin. Here is one of many fall-inspired recipes to come -a healthy pumpkin muffin with chocolate chips, no butter, no oil, low sugar and baked with applesauce, Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour.
