  1. Preheat an oven to 200 degrees C. Grease a 12 whole muffin tray or line with patty cups/muffin cases.
  2. Combine flour, linseed, wheatgerm, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon and chocolate chips in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry; mixing just until combined. Spoon equal amounts of batter into muffin cups.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean: about 20 to 30 minutes.
