Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Nothing says October like Pumpkin Spice. These muffins are packed with pumpkin and topped with sugar. They are super moist and absolutely delicious. How else would I celebrate on the first day of October?

I could eat pumpkin muffins year-round. They give off all the cozy Fall feels. This time of year it seems like Trader Joe’s explodes with pumpkin everything and I am all for it! First on my list of pumpkin things to make was pumpkin chocolate chip bars. Next, these amazing muffins!

These muffins are a great pair to your cup of coffee or tea. They store great in the freezer and are easy to reheat.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Pumpkin spice and all things nice! One bowl, refined sugar and gluten free. These are super soft, cake like, moist and loaded with chocolate chips.

Pumpkin bars fully packed with all beautiful Fall flavor.  All the warm spices that make pumpkin treats so amazing. The combination of pumpkin + chocolate is a match made in heaven totally right up there with chocolate + peanut butter, in my opinion.

I hope you try these!! I can not put into words how delicious they are! Perfect for Fall however they are great anytime of the year. I love having mine with coffee or tea. Something special about next day baked goods that taste so dang delicious so if you can hold off on not eating them all after baking you in for a real treat day 2 and 3!
