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!!!)
PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

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.
