Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I think these are my new favorite pumpkin muffins. They taste like big pumpkin cookies. YUM. I mixed in chocolate chips, but you could leave them plain or mix in raisins or craisins. My kids got a kick out of the Halloween muffin cups. Hey they need to get used sometime and they had pumpkins on them.:)

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (I wonder if canola oil would work)
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (depending on how you like it)
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Fit 2 muffin tins with paper liners (makes about 15 muffins).

In a large bowl whisk together pumpkin, brown sugar, and melted butter. Add eggs and mix well. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until just blended, making sure all the flour is worked in, but you don't want to over mix. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon batter or scoop with a large cookie scoop into lined muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes.
