Heat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and pepper. Stir until well incorporated.
Add the chocolate chips, stirring to combine.
Fill each section of a greased, 12-section muffin tin with roughly ¼ cup batter. Sprinkle the tops with chocolate chips, then bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides and a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then cool the rest on a cooling rack.
