pumpkin + chocolate chip muffins

As soon as I saw this recipe on Margie’s blogI knew it sounded like a real winner! Only thing was due to the fact that I’ll just eat all the muffins I thought a smaller recipe would be safer. So, I cut it in 1/4. Then I found I didn’t have oil and used butter instead. Results? It’s MAAAAGGGIIIIICAAAALLLL. Seriously – these things are amazing. My recipe made 24 mini muffins + 12 regular.

  1. What a yummy recipe, I’ve made similar muffins that didn’t have pumpkin I’ll have to try these! I’ve substituted the same measure of applesauce for the oil and they turn out great!

  2. oooh! i might have to give these a try. there is a farm up the street from my parent’s house that sells homemade baked goods… they have fabulous pumpkin chocolate chip bread, and i’ve been craving it now that the season is starting to change. :]

  3. I’m making these right now! Quick question – Do the mini muffins take as long as the regular? I’m watching them very closely!

  4. These are so good! I used margarine, and it worked perfectly. I also didn’t prebeat the eggs and just threw the water in with the wet ingredients. The hand mixer took care of it all. They are wonderful! My house smells awesome!

  5. Thanks for cutting down the recipe, May. Margie’s original would feed a small army! These sound so darned good and I am in such a baking mood that I will be making these real soon! Hugs from San Jose!
