Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease two 12 cup muffin tins, or line with paper cases.
Beat the eggs in a large bowl, and mix in the sugar, pumpkin and oil.
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, bicarb, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Blend into the egg and pumpkin mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer to the muffin tins.
Bake in the preheated oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove muffins from tins, and cool on a wire rack.

I love these. Made these for my colleagues at work who were pleasantly surprised that they contained pumpkin. My kids loved them too. Will try and tweak the recipe to make them more healthy next time, but on the whole they are great. - 04 Feb 2010
