Serves: 24 (yields 2 dozen muffins)
♦ 1 (15-oz can) pumpkin pie mix
♦ 1 cup water
♦ 1/2 cup canola or veg oil
♦ 4 tsp ground flax seeds

Heat oven 350. Blend pumpkin, water, oil, flax seeds and vanilla until well blended; set aside.
Mix together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; add pumpkin mixture, and stir until well blended (add a little water if mixture seems too dry). Fold in chocolate chips and nuts (if using them).
Spoon into muffin tins, and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes.
