Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

No one can say no to pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! Pumpkin desserts are great plain or with chocolate chips. One bite and you will taste all the flavors of Fall!

After a long hot, humid summer here in Texas, all I dream of is the Fall season. One of the first things I crave are pumpkin desserts. Sometimes I bake pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread, but my family always wants chocolate with their pumpkin desserts.

What’s great with a muffin recipe, is how it can be eaten throughout the day. Muffins are great for breakfasts, snacks, and desserts.
