Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I'm not crazy about pumpkin pie, but I've been using this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (or Cake) for years and everyone loves them. They are perfect for a fall party.

Today is my son's eighth birthday and I made these for his class to celebrate. The pumpkin gives them the aura of a healthy snack and the mini chocolate chips win everyone over with their decadence. These muffins are super moist and adding semi-sweet chocolate to sweet pumpkin improves it no end!

The recipe originally appeared in Bon Appetit and is for a loaf cake. The cake is impressive sliced, but the mini muffins are great for kids, portability, and those watching their waistline. The mini muffins take 13-15 minutes to bake, regular muffins 20-25 minutes, and the loaf cake takes 55 minutes.

Sweet treats for the sweetest boy!
