chocolate pumpkin muffins

chocolate pumpkin muffins--light cupcakes--not pumpkin heavy--pumpkin lovely

i tweaked this recipe

to make 6 muffins:

1/4 c raisins
2-3 tablespoons of bourbon or fruit juice

place the raisins and liquid in coffee cup tenting the plastic wrap up over the top

adhere the plastic smoothly over the rim and sides of the cup
heat in microwave for 1.5 minutes 

do not unwrap--as it cools, it creates a vacuum

draws all the liquid into the raisins

keep covered, let cool, chop raisins, set aside--

1/3 c pumpkin puree
1/4 cup just melted butter (not hot, let cool)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
3 well beaten eggs (200 whisks)
1/4 c sifted coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon:
  • cinnamon
  • baking soda
  • baking powder
1/8 teaspoon: 
  • cloves
  • ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
dash of cayenne
1/4 to 1/2 cup chocolate chips

mix everything well--let batter sit for 30 minutes--divide into 6 -7 muffin cups 

bake 350 degrees for about 33--35 minutes--you see the tops are starting to look pretty browned but let them bake--it's ok--let them cool in the cupcake pan
