Tasty Tuesday: pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

Pumpkin & chocolate?! What's not to love!

The Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp allspice or ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or spray each cup with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, spices & salt.

With a mixer, cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture & pumpkin puree, beginning & ending with flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill muffin cups evenly with batter. Place in oven & bake for 18-20 mins, or until firm to the touch & a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place on wire rack to cool.

*Note: the batter can also be baked i a 9-inch loaf pan instead of muffin cups. Spray the pan with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50-60 mins, or until toothpick comes out clean.
