Hey, East Coasters, don’t let the hurricane blues bring you down! After being stuck inside for the day due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Sandy, aka “Frankenstorm” to keep in the Halloween spirit, I decided to rummage through my kitchen to see what I could bake to lighten my mood. The first two things I saw were canned pumpkin and dark chocolate chips – ding ding ding! Whole wheat pumpkin chocolate chip muffins came to mind. I found a recipe online, adapted it slightly, and whipped up this delicious Halloween treat. They were quick and easy and once I took that first bite, my cabin fever disappeared. Make sure to get the kids involved with simple tasks like measuring, mixing and washing dishes.
