I posted this photo of today’s Spark camp breakfast on my personal Facebook page and a bunch of people (mostly Guiders) asked for the recipe.  That made me think that you’d like it too. Breakfast on the second day of our camps is usually muffins, fruit and any leftovers from the day before (like cheese and breakfast sausage).

2014-05-04 07.54.29As you probably know already, we are real-food converts … that is Hawk Owl Jen’s influence. At camp, one Guider is camp cook (usually Hawk Owl) but this could be done by whoever.  They are really about the same amount of work. You can make them the night before, or that morning.  Depending on time. They are really yummy!!!!  Serve a whole one first round, and halves for seconds.

Pumpkin Chip Muffins  For 24 muffins (From Guider Carolyn, 59th Ottawa Sparks)

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet choc chips – I use minis

Beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil together in a large bowl until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; add to pumpkin mixture. Mix well.

Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper lined muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 400 F for 16-20 minutes or until muffins are done. Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
