Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


With Fall here, I am always ready for Pumpkin. I must tell you that I truly am one of those people that could eat pumpkin constantly. I am never afraid to try new recipes that involve pumpkin. This recipe is definitely a family favorite of mine. I love to make them and freeze the extras. I can then pull them out whenever they sound good and let them thaw and eat them just like they are fresh. I will admit that these are one item that I don’t think are truly good until they cool completely. When they are ooey gooey hot/fresh I always am so excited to try one and then a tad bit disappointed. So I try again when they are cooled and am reminded why this is my favorite muffin recipe!
