Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Dark chocolate and pumpkin together.  What could be healthier? Or tastier?  Not much in my book.  I can feel good while eating these muffins and enjoy them too.  I stumbled on the original recipe at Giving Up On Perfect; tweaked it a tad and decided that these were moist chocolatey goodness with some pumpkin benefits thrown in.

1 cup pumpkin puree
6oz fat free vanilla yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp each of nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350*F.  Grease muffin tin or line with cupcake liners.
Mix together the pumpkin, vanilla, and yogurt.  Add dry ingredients and mix til blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Spoon into prepared muffin tin. (My batch made 12 regular muffins plus 12 mini ones)  Bake 12-15min for mini muffins and 25min for regular muffins.
