These are a nice alternative to regular pumpkin muffins. They are quite dense and filling. My kids love these muffins and they don't last long at all.

I made the recipe as written except that I omitted the allspice and substituted 1 c. whole wheat flour for AP flour. The flavor is good, but the muffins didn't cook up as fluffy as other muffins I've made. I like this recipe because it doesn't have the usual excessive amount of oil found in pumpkin recipes, and I will have no problem finishing off the muffins, but I will keep looking to see if I can find another recipe that results in a lighter texture.

I love these muffins! I made minis for the kids snacks. They feel like they are getting at treat because of the chocolate chips and I feel like they are getting a healthy snack with the pumpkin and lack of oil. I highly recommend this recipe

Delicious - my roommates and I ate these up! I substituted the flour for whole wheat pastry flour and they still had a fluffy texture.
