Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are one of my favorite fall treats. These muffins whip up quickly and fill the air with the most pleasant fall baking aroma as they bake. With ingredients like pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves and chocolate chips these muffins are so tasty you will definitely want seconds.

Have you ever walked through the bakery department of a store when they are baking something?  And you're just dying to have whatever it is hot out of the oven? I have, plenty of times. It's always disappointing to know that by the time it's ready to purchase, it's no longer warm from the oven.

One of the reasons I love baking so much is that smell that fills the house. It's so homey and comforting. Another reason I love baking so much - I get to eat the finished product while it's still warm. There's nothing better on a chilly fall evening than warm apple crisp, fresh pumpkin chocolate chip cookies,  warm zucchini bread, or fresh pumpkin muffins with melted chocolate chips in every bite.

I use the same recipe for these muffins as I do to make Pumpkin Bread. The only difference is the baking time, which is much shorter, which means we get to eat them sooner!
