Mini Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I came across this yummy looking recipe from Inside BruCrew Life and had to give it a try.  I’m a crazy lover of pumpkin… I even dedicated an entire Pinterest Board to All Things Pumpkin. Can you say YUM-O? These little muffins hit the mark – super pumpkiny (is that a word?) and dense, plus a bit sweet with the cinnamon sugar glaze on top. I have about a half can of pumpkin left…. what shall I make next? I can’t wait to do some more baking. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! I used coconut oil and whole wheat white flour. My hubby who thinks healthy = bad, loves these! Very moist.

      Thank you! SO glad you liked it. And nice to know coconut oil works for it, I’ve been wanting to use coconut oil more myself!
