Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are very moist from the pumpkin. Yet the flavor of the chocolate shines  brightly.  They have a light spice but it doesn’t detract or get in the way of the chocolate chips.

These were very well received and are certain to be made in my home each autumn from now on. As they say- it’s in  the permanent rotation. I hope  they will find their way into your  menus as well.
