Recipe by Marg (CaymanDesigns)
Everyone I have ever served these to rants about them. I have made some modifications to make them a little healthier. That recipe is Lite or Light Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. Either way though, we love them. (Recipe updated to add vanilla, more cinnamon and reduce oil slightly (original calls for 1 1/2 cups oil) since we prefer them with these alterations.)
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄4 cups vegetable oil (yes, 1 1/4 cups)
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (Regular or mini, I like mini best)
