I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. She is a fabulous baker and really hasn't ever made anything that wasn't amazing, so I wasn't surprised by how awesome these turned out. I don't think you can go wrong with them, they are nice and moist and have a perfect amount of sweetness with the chocolate chips. A dab of cream cheese frosting and a glass of milk? Yes and yes.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 cup oil (my sister-in-law used half oil, half applesauce)
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 2/3 cups milk
- 1 3/4 cups pumpkin, 15 oz (not pie filling!)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350, spray muffin pan with non-stick spray.
In a mixing bowl, beat together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla; blend thoroughly.
In a separate bowl sift flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Gradually add egg mixture to the dry mixture, blend thoroughly.
Fold in half of the milk, and half of the pumpkin. Repeat.
Spoon mix into pans, about 2/3 full. Bake 20 minutes, or until fork comes out clean.
Yields about 3 dozen or so. Try not to eat them all yourself.
