Hopefully you aren’t tired of pumpkin recipes yet because I have a couple more for you ;). I actually made this recipe a couple weeks ago, but I’ve somehow gotten really far behind on my blogging. (I have about 10 recipes in line to post!)

Jordan and I both really liked these muffins. The pumpkin flavor is subtle, somewhat overshadowed by the chocolate flavor (which I was fine with because, I mean, who would ever pick pumpkin over chocolate?? =). The pumpkin keeps the muffins really moist and allowed me to reduce the about of fat. I also used white whole wheat flour to help make them even healthier…and then I added chocolate, because that’s healthy too, right?. Ok, maybe not but it was dark chocolate at least. I also decided to add espresso powder to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. You don’t get a coffee taste, it just makes the chocolate taste even better. If you don’t like dark chocolate you could certainly use milk chocolate chips, but I really prefer dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips–especially in baked goods. These muffins are good right out of the oven or at room temperature and will keep for a couple days in a sealed container. Enjoy!
