- Preheat the oven to bake at 350 degrees, and line a muffin tray with cupcake papers.
- Place a mesh strainer into a medium sized mixing bowl, like they are "nested".
- Add the coconut flour, tapioca starch, maple sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice to the mesh trainer, and sift all of those ingredients into the mixing bowl.
- In a small mixing bowl, blend together the eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin puree.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and blend again with a hand mixer until smooth.
- Add the melted palm shortening, and blend again, this time turning the speed up to high to whip some air into the batter.
- Stir in the chocolate chips, and using an ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into each muffin cup.
- Bake the muffins on the middle rack, in the center of the oven for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool, and enjoy.
