In The Kitchen: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, October 16, 2017

Fall in our house means Chocolate Chip Muffins!! Starting September 1st my mom heads to the kitchen to make the first batch of many Chocolate Chip Muffins that we will consume throughout the fall. We have them for breakfast, grab them for a snack, munch on them throughout the day, or even sneak into the kitchen to grab one for a midnight snack. Fall means all things PUMPKIN for me especially and you wouldn't believe the incredible pairing of pumpkin + chocolate:) 

Since Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins are my favorite fall treat and make fall that extra sweet I thought I would share the easy and delicious recipe with you so that you can taste them for yourself!

3 1/2 Cups Flour
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Cinnamon 
1 tsp. Nutmeg
3 Cups sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs
2 Cups Canned or Pure Pumpkin 
1 1/2 - 2 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips 

**Preheat oven to 350 Degrees**
1) Before you start, grab a cup of coffee, Pumpkin spice, cider, or fall flavored tea, put on your favorite fall tunes, open a window, grab an apron and get ready to bake!
2) Start by first sifting your dry ingredients (flour, salt, soda,sugar and spices) together into a large bowl.
3) In a separate bowl or mixer, mix the pumpkin, water, oil and eggs together.
4) Carefully pour your dry mixture into your pumpkin mixture in three small amounts...if you pour it all at once be ready for December in a full on blizzard of flour snow:)
5) If you choose to make muffins, spray your muffin pans with non stick spray (or you can use muffins papers), use a mechanical ice cream scoop for the perfect measurement, and scoop the batter into each tray section. This recipe makes around 4 dozen muffins.
6) Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. TIP: I learned a baking tip for checking cupcakes and muffins from a baker at a shop once, and the best way to test if muffins or cupcakes are cooked and ready is whether or not they float back up after you press on the center. So if you open the oven and lightly press on a muffin and it floats back up it is READY! 
7) Cool the muffins on a cooling rack and remove from the pan when they are somewhat cool. 
8) Serve warm with a cold glass of milk! 

If you try out the recipe let me know what you think or tag me if you share it on social media! Hope you enjoy these delectable fall muffins as much as I do.
