Pumpkin Muffins!

This is one of my favorite fall recipes. My kids love these and the recipe makes two pans of muffins. I do one pan of mini muffins, with mini chocolate chips. Then I add regular chips and put the rest of the batter into the regular sized muffin cups. I probably shouldn't tell you this, but my family will usually eat the entire recipe in a day. They are great warmed in the micro for 10 seconds, just to melt the chips again. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Muffins

3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. milk
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. butter/margerine melted (I use 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. applesause)
2 eggs
semi-sweat chocolate chips (mini and regular chips)

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In a seperate bowl, combine milk, butter (and applesause), eggs, and pumpkin. Pour the wet on top of the dry and combine just until moisened. Stir in chocolate chips. (I put just mini chips in at first and fill my mini muffin tin, then do the regular size.) You can add as much chocolate as you want. Put into greased muffin cups.

Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 min. for mini muffins, and 15-20 for regular sized muffins.

Makes 24 muffins.
