Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love a good muffin. They make such a perfect and portable snack– filling enough to curb your hunger without ruining your appetite! These muffins are a great, healthy way to enjoy pumpkin season, and it’s the pumpkin that keeps them soft and lovely without oil or butter.

It took me a long time to appreciate the pumpkin chocolate chip combination. I love and adore both of those things separately, but together they just didn’t do it for me. A really excellent pumpkin chocolate chip bread finally convinced me of the potential, but of course, it wasn’t a super healthy recipe, and I thought I could probably try giving it a good-for-you makeover.

Lightly sweet and soft, flavored with a hint of cinnamon and studded with chocolate, these muffins are a lovely snack for fall– and they’re perfect with a pumpkin spice latte! πŸ™‚
