Years ago, my friend Michele introduced me to the most amazing pumpkin bread. It was like no other I’d tried before…most and delicious.  I never liked waiting for bread to bake, and I like a little texture in my baked goods, so I tweaked it a bit to make what I see as the best fall treat, The Best Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins. I shared a similar recipe a few years ago with craisins, but I decided I don’t like the craisins anymore, and just wanted to share the recipe without, because it’s just my fave.

  1. One tablespoon or teaspoon of baking soda? You have the tsp capilatized but for tablespoon it is usually Tbsp. ??
    I went with teaspoon and hopefully they aren’t ruined.
