Chocolate makes it all better…or so the saying goes. And it's certainly true for these muffins. Perfectly spiced and wonderfully moist, they're made even more delicious by the tiny bits of chocolate nestled within.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, oil , eggs and sugar until well blended.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Add to the pumpkin mixture and whisk until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling each about 2/3 full. Sprinkle a few more chips on top of the muffins.
