After School Snack...Pumpkin Chip Muffins

I have written before about how Flynn and I like to have a homemade snack once a week for our hungry school kids. This is an all-time favorite of us all. I found the recipe at Taste of Home. Enjoy!

                   Pumpkin Chip Muffins

Ingredients:    4 eggs
                     2 cups of sugar
                     1 15 oz. can pumpkin
                     1 1/2 cups oil
                     3 cups flour
                     2 teaspoons baking soda
                     1 teaspoon baking powder
                     1 teaspoon cinnamon
                     1 teaspoon salt
                     12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions:       Combine flour, baking soda,
                      baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
                      Set aside.
                      Beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil until smooth.
                      Gradually add flour mixture and mix well.
                      Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups.
                      Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 18
                     ( I had to bake mine a bit longer.)
                      Cool in pan 10 minutes.
                      Makes 2 dozen muffins.

  2. Hi Billie Jo! Have a wonderful time with your family tonight and thanks so much for checking in on us. We never lost power but much of our neighborhood did so the girls are home from school again today. I can't beleive what this storm did to NJ and NY. And I can't beleive that tomorrow is November; yikes. Somehow when we turn the calendar to that month things seem to really pick up like crazy!

  3. Just saw your comment... yes, Franklin (a fav of mine) and Little Bear... what will I do when they grow out of those shows? :)


Thanks so much for saying hello!
