What I love about this muffin recipe is how easy they are to make and the flavors of Fall are bursting through and through. The chocolate chips don’t hurt either.

So skip the drive through and the store bought ones and make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. I promise you’ll be so happy you did!
These muffins are also a fun family baking idea.
Each year we make some type of muffin and with the kids at home doing e learning, it’s nice to have a grab and go snack or treat for them to enjoy while doing their school work.
My kids loved helping me whip these up and dotting the tops of them with extra chocolate chips. They might have snuck a few into their mouths while they were helping too!

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT PUMPKIN MUFFINS
I don’t have buttermilk. What else can I use?
– You can use any type of milk you’d like OR you can make homemade buttermilk by combing 2/3 cup regular dairy milk with either 2 teaspoons of white vinegar or fresh lemon juice.
We like to warm them in the microwave, split them in half and smear butter on them. It’s SO good. Melt in your mouth, amazing!
They’re perfect with a hot cup of coffee for breakfast or a warm tea in the afternoon.
