Instructions

  • Add in the pumpkin puree and oil and beat until combined.
  • Next add all the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg, all spice and pumpkin pie spice) and stir until combined, you could also use your mixer to combine. If using chocolate chips, add them and mix them in.

Notes

The chocolate chips are optional in this recipe.[br]This recipe can be made with gluten free flour, all purpose flour or even whole wheat flour.[br]My favorite, preferred gluten free baking flour is this Bob's Red Mill gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour.
