Can you vary this recipe?

The children love these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins as a treat after school, for breakfast or as a snack. You can use whole wheat flour instead of plain for a more pumpkin bread consistency and leave out the chocolate chips for a more healthy pumpkin muffin. You could even use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil if you wanted.

These muffins keep well in an airtight container for a few days and freeze well too. Perfect for taking out for a healthy breakfast or as a home made sweet treat whenever you fancy one.
