Ten on the 10th - Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Muffins

The Ten on the 10th theme this month was 


I have made pumpkins, sewed pumpkins and painted pumpkins.... coming up with a new idea was a challenge for me!

I decided to make Pumpkin Muffins - something I don't think I have ever made before.  I love quick breads and muffins,  but I usually favor banana breads and zucchini breads.

I found this recipe online and decided to add a little bit of chocolate to the recipe - these are DELISH:

Pumpkin Muffins - with Chocolate Chips!

4 eggs
2 C sugar
1 can, 15 Oz Pumpkin Puree
1 1/2 C canola oil
3 C flour
2t baking soda
1t baking powder
1T pumpkin spice
1t salt
2 C chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400°.  Place 24 paper liners in muffin tins.  In a large bowl beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil until smooth.  In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, flour, spice and salt.  Add flour mixture slowly to wet mixture and mix by hand.  Fold in all but 1/4 c chocolate chips.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and sprinkle a few chocolate chips on the top of each muffin.   Bake for 20+ minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks.

I can never wait for anything to cool - these were so tasty with a bit of melted butter:

24 muffins were made for less than $10 !!
