pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

The first time I tried these was about a year ago when my friend Karolyn made them for breakfast during a girlfriends retreat/reunion. Good memories (love you guys!). What I like about these muffins (besides the chocolate chips!) is that you barely taste the pumpkin. It's not overwhelming. Not even close. They're very light & fluffy ... not dense.



PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. ground pumpkin (canned)
1/2 c. cooking oil
1/3 c. chocolate chips

Mix together. Fill muffin cups and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

**Added note: If using mini muffin pan, just about 12 minutes is perfect in my oven. And I sprayed the mini muffin pan before filling each space half-way with the mixture. (No muffin cups.)

Super simple. When the recipe is this simple, I definitely involve the kids. Porter & Claire helped me make some today and we're sharing with some neighbors when we go for a walk later this evening.

Should have asked when I first started, but could I get your permission to use the picture of your pumpkin muffins? They look great on my blog's banner at http://moufflets.blogspot.com.

Love your recipes!

I was thinking about making these this weekend. Partially because my husband does not like Pumpkin which means MORE FOR ME! But how many muffins does this make?

This recipe is golden! They are the best tasting muffin I have ever had, and soooooo easy to make. The recipe makes 24 and I would reccomend using mini chocolate chips!!

This is a great recipe, I just wanted to share my alteration of the recipe to accomodate my sons' severe allergy to eggs: to replace one egg I use 1Tbsp of ground flax seed with 3Tbsp of hot water and let it thicken ten minutes, then just whisk it in to your wet ingredients. Works good and you get the added benefit of flax.
