this recipe over at MoneySavingMom and decided to modify it. My aunt gave me some pumpkin when she came to visit and I thought we'd have a taste of fall in May. If you don't have pumpkin you can use plain baked sweet potatoes instead (about 2 cups).
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
16 oz REAL pumpkin or 16 oz sweet potatoes
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup skim buttermilk (you can use regular milk)
8 oz chocolate chips (more if desired)
Combine eggs through pumpkin. Mix well.
