I debated as to whether or not I should use these, um, slightly browned Pumpkin Chip Muffins in this post. They may look over-browned, but they were not over-baked. After the week I’ve had (let’s make that month), I just didn’t have the oomph to make them again. Leave it to me to over-brown the muffins with the timer set. Ever have one of those days? I promise it didn’t compromise the taste or moistness of these delicious homemade muffins.
Now you all know I’m not perfect and very capable of mishaps in the kitchen. Who knew? Do any of you have a kitchen story to tell?
We have been having some beautiful fall days this week. I have, thoroughly, enjoyed the cooler weather. It actually made it into the upper 30’s last night. We’ve been stocking the wood shed with firewood the last couple of weeks. We have one more load to go, and then it should be enough for the cold winter months ahead. It sure is a good feeling to have an abundance of dry, seasoned wood stashed away.
We’re getting geared up for our church camp-out this weekend and guess what? They’re calling for rain…all weekend! I sure hope the forecast prediction changes before then. There’s still time! Right? These yummy Pumpkin Chip Muffins will make a great camping breakfast with a hot cup of coffee on a crisp fall morning. In fact, I froze some of these for the trip. :)
These muffins are loaded with this pumpkin pie spice and mini chocolate chips. The combination of pumpkin and chocolate is delicious, and they are so moist. Have you tried it yet? If not, don’t wait too much longer. You’re gonna love it!
Pumpkin Chip Muffins – they’re a good thing. :)
