Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is a perfect fall muffin.

We really like pumpkin desserts in our house. One of the things I love about fall is fixing foods that contain pumpkin. These muffins are one of our favorites.

I found this recipe on allrecipes several years ago. I have made it many times because my kids love them.

My daughter likes them so much she wanted them two years ago instead of a birthday cake. I decided to make them into a cake. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9×13 pan and used cool whip as the frosting. She thought it was great. It was good, but our favorite way to eat them is as muffins.

This week I decided to try and make these a little healthier, so I used some whole wheat pastry flour in them. It worked really well and no one complained about the whole wheat in them. In fact, no one said anything about them being different. I made a double batch of these and sent some to work with my husband. The kids and I also had them for breakfast.

    These look totally delish…I love pumpkin flavor. Can’t wait till we have kids that are old enough to help us eat stuff so I don’t eat the whole batch myself!

    Hmmm, maybe I can bring ’em to church.
