* you can substitute 2 additional eggs instead of the soaked chia mixture if desired.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, canola oil, soaked chia seeds, eggs, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla. Beat on low for 2 minutes. In a medium bowl, sift together the remaining ingredients, and then add slowly to the wet mixture, beating for an additional 2 minutes, until fully combined. Pour batter into a paper lined muffin tin and bake at 350F for about 25 minutes. Makes 18 muffins/ cupcakes. If desired, frost with cream cheese icing when cooled and decorate with candy corns.
