Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

As I mentioned last week, I love pumpkin and this cooler weather makes me crave it even more. I have a really bad tea drinking problem. Well, not necessarily a problem per se, but I do drink it ALL…DAY…LONG whether it’s tea with skim milk or just a plain Green Tea. It helps keep me going throughout the day.

One of my frequent stops is a local Dunkin’ Donuts drive through to get my daily fix when I’m on the road. Lately, if I have the kids in the car, they want the sweet stuff. Most of the time, its a “NO”, but every once in a while I give in and their favorite choices are either Pumpkin Munchkins or a Pumpkin Muffin.

So the other day I surprised them with my own homemade version of a Pumpkin Muffin and there were THRILLED. Though these are a bit smaller than the portion size at Dunkin’ Donuts, they were very filling and one was plenty…and it satisfied a few chocolate cravings as well.

For those of you keeping track of the nutritional analysis, here is the breakdown between the two muffins:

My family LOVED these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins and look forward to me making them every year now. I like to make extra and freeze them so when the pumpkin craving urge strikes, I’m prepared. ~Enjoy!
