Moist and delicious and full of chocolate chips, these are the absolute best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins around.

Years ago, my friend Michele introduced me to the most amazing pumpkin bread. It was like no other I’d tried before, moist and delicious.  I have to be honest and say I don’t like waiting for bread to bake.  And I like a little chocolate in my baked goods.  So I tweaked it a bit and came up with the best fall treat around, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

One might debate it’s more of a cupcake, but since it doesn’t have frosting, I won’t call these pumpkin muffins a cupcake.

Just trust me on this one. Grab the ingredients and get to work, you will not be disappointed!  And if you like a little more fruit in your muffins, make sure to check out my cranberry pumpkin muffin recipe.
