Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are my favorite fall treat! The spicey, pumpkiny flavor just screams October. The best part is they are so simple to make, so when the craving strikes they'll be ready in about a half hour! I love the pumpkin chocolate combination they pair so well together but if chocolate is not your thing replace them with chopped walnuts, raisins or both! It's not really fall until you try these muffins!

 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


1 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar 
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl combine dry ingredients (including sugar and spice) till completely incorporated. Add soft butter, pumpkin and eggs and mix well into dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and stir gently into batter. Scoop batter into muffin pan until 3/4 full. Bake 20 minutes until edges are light brown. Watch carefully not to over bake to avoid dry muffins. Enjoy!
