Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

My cravings for pumpkin and spice are in full swing. Sipping chai, adding cinnamon and spices to smoothies, baking with pumpkin and roasting squash is in full operation in my kitchen. Pumpkin bread and pumpkin muffins are one of my favourite Autumn treats to bake. These healthy muffins are made with maple syrup so they are not overly sweet. They are moist, dense and delicious.
