Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins {a.k.a. 'Puffins'}

These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins are moist, tender, and deliciously spiked with semi-sweet chocolate chips.  A perfect muffin to enjoy with those Fall breakfasts, or any time of the year!

I absolutely love, love, love these Chocolate Chip 'Puffins!' (pumpkin + muffins = 'puffins' ... Clever, right?).  Because chocolate and pumpkin together are such a fabulous flavor combination.  If you've never tried it, you're seriously going to want to change that.



I got this super tasty recipe from a friend of mine (Jenny, whose hands play the starring role in my Salted Chocolate Cake Pops post).  She made these for an event we had at our school back when I was a teacher, and I was in complete love after just one bite.  

There's just something amazing that happens when pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and chocolate flavors collide.  It's absolutely heavenly.  I asked for the recipe {of course}, and sweet Jenny was more than happy to oblige.

Loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and pure pumpkin puree, these muffins are tender and moist.  They're freezer-friendly, too, so you can easily save some for later.

They're just perfect for enjoying for Fall breakfasts or brunch.  But with all their pumpkin-and-chocolate yumminess, they're not a recipe you'll want to relegate to just Fall.

So during this Fall season, squirrel some cans of 100% pure pumpkin away in your pantry.  Because deliciously spiked with chocolate chips, these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins are fabulous to enjoy all year long!
