By replacing half of the flour in this recipe with whole wheat flour, you get an extract dose of heart-healthy and filling fiber. Pumpkin makes these muffins moist and adds Vitamins A, C, E, and K and fiber, not to mention the flavor of fall. Adding a small amount of chocolate chips makes these muffins sweet enough for a dessert that you can feel good about.

      Most muffin recipes do not require changes for baking at high altitudes. If you are above 5,000 feet elevation, it may be necessary to reduce the baking soda just slightly.

    It is actually not difficult to replace all the white flour with whole grain, if you use whole wheat pastry flour. In muffins flavored with things like pumpkin and whole wheat, it is pretty much undetectable. You might need a touch more liquid (perhaps a couple of tablespoons of water or milk). I do it all the time and my son loves them.
