Muffins for Mommy

Earlier this week, I had the privilege of meeting baby Otis, Randi & KC's bundle of joy who arrived on 10/27!

I spent the day with mommy and baby and did not want to show up empty-handed!  I decided to continue in the fall spirit and whipped up some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. These were super easy and made about 15 muffins, so I was able to keep a few for me and The Hub to try.  Perfect for breakfast or a snack, they have just the right amount of spice, are perfectly moist and have delicious chocolate surprises sprinkled throughout!  You can find the original recipe here or see below.

You'll need: 1 cup pumpkin puree 1/3 cup vegetable oil 2 large eggs 1 ¼ cups sugar 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt ½ cup mini chocolate chips Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a muffin tin, or line with paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, oil , eggs and sugar until well blended.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Add to the pumpkin mixture and whisk until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling each about 2/3 full. Sprinkle a few more chips on top of the muffins.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a rack.
