Chocolate Cinnamon Muffins

A nice little muffin for when you get the munchies. I like the cinnamon, but instant coffee granules would be nice too - a "Mocha Muffin".
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup ground flax meal
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
2 TB cocoa powder
1 heaping tsp cinnamon (I recently discovered Vietnamese cinnamon - wow, this is great stuff)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup splenda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (for moisture - you don't taste this - PROMISE!)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
3 TB canola oil
1/4 cup sugar free chocolate chips or 1/4 cup chopped SF chocolate bar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately and combine. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins almost to top with batter. Bake for 13 - 15 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes and then remove to rack to cool.
