I love chocolate chip pumpkin muffins! They taste like fall! I don’t always add the ginger or allspice. Sometimes I kick up the cinnamon. And sometimes if I want them even more moist I will add 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce.

This recipe was originally from Taste of Home. But as I stated above, I adapt it to whatever I want at the time.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
dash allspice
1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
2/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Combine the egg, brown sugar, pumpkin, milk, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Serves 12.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
