These are one of my favorites. The chocolate and pumpkin go great together. : )

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Super tender, these pumpkin muffins are filled with chocolate chips in every bite. It has a fall feel to it, but you're not overwhelmed with pumpkin spice. Cinnamon is the more prominent flavor. Canned pumpkin helps make the muffin moist and adds just the right sweetness. We like using a combination of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour in this recipe. It gives them a slightly different texture than your normal muffin. They're a bit chewy, but not dry. A delicious pumpkin muffin for fall.
