pumpkin + chocolate chip muffins


As soon as I saw this recipe on Margie’s blogI knew it sounded like a real winner! Only thing was due to the fact that I’ll just eat all the muffins I thought a smaller recipe would be safer. So, I cut it in 1/4. Then I found I didn’t have oil and used butter instead. Results? It’s MAAAAGGGIIIIICAAAALLLL. Seriously – these things are amazing. My recipe made 24 mini muffins + 12 regular.

  1. What a yummy recipe, I’ve made similar muffins that didn’t have pumpkin I’ll have to try these! I’ve substituted the same measure of applesauce for the oil and they turn out great!

  2. oooh! i might have to give these a try. there is a farm up the street from my parent’s house that sells homemade baked goods… they have fabulous pumpkin chocolate chip bread, and i’ve been craving it now that the season is starting to change. :]

  4. These are so good! I used margarine, and it worked perfectly. I also didn’t prebeat the eggs and just threw the water in with the wet ingredients. The hand mixer took care of it all. They are wonderful! My house smells awesome!
