Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

This diet gets better and better. Once my kids heard I was making Pumpkin Muffins the chocolate chip requests began. These were suppose to be just plain old pumpkin muffins, but my arm was twisted. I’ll admit that it wasn’t hard to do. Did you know that wine and dark chocolate are A-OK on the 21 Day Fix diet? Well, they are! Of course in moderation. And ONLY dark chocolate. No milk chocolate for us Fixers.

These muffins were a huge hit! Both kids scoffed them down like they have never eaten, and I loved them as well! My house smelled amazing while they were Pumpkin chocolate chip muffincooking. It feels a little more like autumn now that we have some pumpkin around here.
