Recipe of the week!! whoop whoop!!

So I LOVE great harvest pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, like I really, really like them, and we have a great harvest right down the street. Great harvest muffins are almost $3 dollars each...yikes. So, as much as I love pumpkin muffins I love my husband more and he definitely doesn't understand buying $3 dollar muffins ha ha, I found this recipe and MAN!! They taste exactly the same (possible better) and are quick :) enjoy! (If the fat content is just too much for you, there's a lite version available here, but seriously they're worth the fat!!!)

30 min | 10 min prep

30 muffins

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
20oz pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil (yes, 1 1/4 cups)
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (plus an extra handful or two) (Regular or mini, I like mini best)

In large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla and oil until smooth.
Mix dry ingredients together and mix into pumpkin mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake at 400 F for 16-20 minutes.

Ok. I may just have to risk the fat content because I LOVE great harvest pumpkin Chocolate chip muffins. Here they are only $2 so you'll have to splurge next time you're in Oregon! Thanks for the recipe! Can you find one that's like GH's Banana Chocolate chip!?!? Now that would be heaven! (:
So glad I comment now! I am a TOTAL commenter! (:
