I can’t wait for fall to get here because it gives me a great excuse to make all my favorite fall recipes. One of them is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.
The first time I saw this recipe I couldn’t believe it didn’t have any butter in it and there were chocolate chips. Yummy!! I knew I would use the dark version of chocolate chips in these muffins. Hey, I can always use a bit of help with anti oxidants and they taste good too.
Even though these are so good right out of the oven, I love popping them in the microwave and adding just a bit of butter on it. These are great to have when you have company. Especially Thanksgiving weekend. And you can usually get canned pumpkin on sale this time of the year also.
