Here is yet another pumpkin recipe I just love muffins, so it was only fitting I would make healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. They make me feel like I am eating cake for breakfast. 🙂 Growing up in Boston, we had a Dunkin Donuts on every corner.
One of the things I loved there was the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Then one day I looked up the nutrition facts. They have 600 calories and 26 grams of fat. Ouch!
Meadow and I ate one as soon as they came out of the oven. Yum! Do you have a Dunkin Donuts nearby? We only have a handful here in Texas.
If you are a visual person, I filmed this short video on how to make these. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.
