Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

As promised, here is the other pumpkin recipe I promised to share.  Chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are one of our favorite breakfast treats.  Who am I kidding, they are basically a dessert that we get to eat at breakfast....and for snacks....and just about anytime.  I made this batch this morning, and it is nearly gone.  They go quick!  I usually cut the recipe in half and it makes about eighteen muffins which is plenty for us.  But these also freeze well, so if you make the whole batch, you will be glad a few months from now when you pull them out to enjoy.

Here's what you need:
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 (16 oz) can pureed pumpkin
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 package of chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil until smooth.  Add in dry ingredients and mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake 16-20 minutes at 400 degrees.  Yields 24-30 muffins.

You could always not add the chocolate chips and just enjoy the simple taste of a plain pumpkin muffin.  Or perhaps throw in some chopped pecans.  Hope you enjoy!

This is a good recipe. I make pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins for work get-togethers a lot around this time of year. I haven't been able to find the recipe that I originally used, so I always end up tweaking other recipes that I find online. This one seems a lot like the original one. Thanks for posting!
