Vegan Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Count this as one of my new favorite muffin recipes.  The muffins have a spicy pumpkin taste punctuated by delicious chocolate bursts.  The best way to enjoy the muffins? Right out of the oven, when the chocolate is still melted!  I also like this recipe, because it relies on apple sauce and banana for moistness instead of adding oil.  So thanks Healthy Girl’s Kitchen for sharing this delicious recipe!
