Pumkana or Banumpkin Muffins (or Pumpkin Banana Muffins)

I had some very ripe bananas, and a can of pumpkin, so I thought I would see if I could find a recipe for Pumpkin/Banana bread. I found this recipe and it's delicious! and healthy! Although, I made a slight change - I added chocolate chips...Anyway, it's great for breakfast, snack or dessert, and my picky taste tester (aka finicky toddler, Reid) LOVES them! Let me know if you try them and what you think!

Pumpkin Banana Muffins

Servings: 24 substantial muffins

4 cups whole wheat flour

4 tsp. baking powder

4 tsp ground cinnamon (I use 2 tsp. cinnamon and 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice)

2 tsp. ground ginger

2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

15 ounces pumpkin, cooked or from a can

4 large eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup banana, very ripe, mashed

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350, grease or line muffin tins with paper liners

2. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

3. Stir so it's well mixed.

4. Combine pumpkin, eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, bananas and oil in a large mixing bowl; beat until smooth.

5. Gradually beat in flour mixture, beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

6. Spoon into prepared pans or tins.

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean.

8. Remove muffins to a wire rack as soon as they come out of the oven.
