Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

December 7, 2015Teresa

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are so incredibly awesome. These muffins have it all! Are you interested in a lovely breakfast muffin for the holidays? I’ve got the perfect one for you. The sweet, rich flavors of pumpkin along with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla, then teamed up with chocolate is absolutely heavenly.

A couple of weeks ago at our Sunday evening Bible study, I had a few minutes to chat with our pastor’s wife. We got on the subject of favorite foods for the holidays. Hailey mentioned that her family always had Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins for Thanksgiving breakfast.

Her newborn came down with an ear infection and she was tending him day and night for three days. So I volunteered to bring them a meal. I had some Easy French Bread that I pulled out of the freezer, along with a batch of frozen Mushroom Soup with Winter Vegetables. But I wanted to make them something else as well.

I remembered how much Hailey said they loved Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, so I poured through Pinterest recipes and found a Pumpkin Muffin recipe that looked scrumptious. I liked all of its ingredients better than any other recipe. I decided to add chocolate chips and make these muffins up for them as well. I’m glad I did, because they raved over them. Hailey told me the kids absolutely devoured these muffins.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are the ticket for any holiday breakfast. Just enough spice, just enough pumpkin, just enough chocolate. Just delectable. If you’re looking for inspiration for your Christmas breakfast menu, then consider making these sensational muffins along with your favorite breakfast casserole. You won’t be disappointed, and I bet you eat more than one! 🙂

When I initially posted this recipe in November 2015, I was really unhappy with my pictures. I recently remade this recipe (January 2019) along with several other goodies for my husband to take out and share at his office. Everyone raved over these fantastic muffins. I thought it was time for a few new pictures, too.
