Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are an absolute favorite of my family’s. When my children saw these muffins on the counter, they asked if they were for breakfast, lunch, supper (dessert) or snack. I told them they were for whatever they want them to be. They were thrilled. That is what is great about these muffins. They are very versatile and can be used for snacks or breakfast or to be packed in lunch boxes. They are so easy to make.
This recipe is a dump and go recipe too. You can add everything to the bowl. No “this ingredients then mix” or “that ingredient and fold”. Simply add all of the ingredients in the bowl and stir. Done. Who doesn’t love that?!?
I made these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins when two of my children were at school and the other two were being entertained by Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It is our first experience with Netflix (never had it before) and the children have really enjoyed Jake. Anyway, when the kids had a muffin for lunch, our two year old (Caleb) exclaimed “MUFFIN MAN!”. Yes, he calls muffins, “Muffin Man”. Then usually the Muffin Man song is close to follow. Too cute. 🙂
