Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

As the last few days of summer slowly linger by and the days start to cool down, I can't help but smile. There is only one magical thing on my mind... Fall.


{ Mmmm... Fall! }


Crisp autumn days are my absolute favorite time of the year for oh-so-many reasons. Golden and crimson colored trees. Leaves crunching under my feet while on a long walk. Yummy candy corn. Halloween. My birthday. But of course I can't leave out my favorite reason... delicious fall spices and flavors.

I've been tweaking some of my favorite fall recipes so that I can reveal to you one of my favorite and most tasty creations yet...


{ Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins }



Your tastebuds will be tantalized by hints of cinnamon,
nutmeg, allspice, rich pumpkin
and ooey gooey chocolate chips.

1/4 cup vegetable oil**
