Chocolate Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

As you probably know by now, my family loves muffins and I love trying new muffin recipes. We eat muffins at least once a week. So, I like to find new and interesting recipes. I know chocolate and pumpkin may sound like an interesting and strange combination, but it is really good. My kids loved these and kids are some of the pickiest eaters.

I can’t exactly call these healthy because they contain a cake mix. In general I have been staying away from cake mixes, but something about this recipe made me really want to try it. I wanted to make something to give the kids for a dessert/snack the other day. I had a chocolate cake mix in my pantry, so I decided  it was a good time to give these a try.

These are not really healthy, but they are not exactly unhealthy either.  These are a bit cake like because they are made from a cake mix, but these do not contain oil or butter like most cakes would.  These only contain a few ingredients, so they are easy to put together.
