For the Love of Pumpkin!

I'm a lover of all things pumpkin.

Pumpkin Lattes

And anything and everything that looks or sounds or tastes like pumpkin. 

So today, in honor of October, and in honor of pumpkins everywhere, I have made pumpkin muffins. It is my gift to you. Whether you are obsessed with pumpkin or not.

Pumpkin Muffins

1 3/4 cup All-purpose Flour
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Large Eggs
1/4 cups Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 can Pumpkin
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line 12 muffin tins with cupcake liners.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
3. Add in pumpkin, oil and eggs, stirring until creamy and thick. Stir in chocolate chips. 
4. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 23-27 minutes until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean.

Serve warm with a dollop of butter. Don't be jelly. You can make them too.
