Sorry...I wish I would have thought of taking a photo sooner...but these things go fast.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cupcakes Recipe

1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
1/3 cup oil
3/4cup agave (or 1 cup sugar)
1/4 cup soy milk (or regular milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix together pumpkin, oil, agave, soy milk and vanilla.  In another bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture by hand until wet. Don't over mix as it will make the cupcakes gummy.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

In a cupcake pan with cupcake liners fill 2/3 full.  Bake for 19-22 minutes.  Or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from pans and let cool completely before Icing.

Cinnamon Icing

1 teaspoon cinnamon
4tablespoons butter melted
2tablespoon soy milk (or milk)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the sugar and cinnamon together.  Add the wet ingredients and stir well, so its nice and smooth.  You can drizzle it on top or put it in a zip lock bag and snip off a tip and pipe it out.
