Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

If you bake one thing in the next few weeks, make it these muffins. They are to.die.for. There’s really no better way to ring in fall than with pumpkin, and making something that can serve as breakfast, a snack, or dessert is even better!

Thanks to our wonderful kitchen lighting and my still-developing camera skills, these kind of look like corn bread muffins and are incredibly yellow. But I swear, they’re soft and gooey and perfect, not to mention incredibly easy to make!

      hahaha whaaaat?! These will still be good without the chips but you may be the second or third person who I’ve heard just truly doesn’t like chocolate!


  1. […] – If I ever get brave enough to make doughnuts myself, these will have to happen. I’ve never been quite on board with the sea salt trend that’s been everywhere, but it seems pretty great on these. And since I’ve been on the pumpkin kick lately… […]

  2. […] My other preference for a great hostess gift? A well-presented floral arrangement, a nice box of tea, and baked goods/breakfast for the next day. These are easy to pick up yet still a little indulgent, plus the host(s) will thank you for brightening up the following day. Try out this bread, this bread, or these muffins! […]
