Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Fall Baking, Fall Recipes, Pumpkin Recipes, High Altitude BakingIt wouldn't be fall without waking up on a weekend morning to the scent of freshly baked pumpkin muffins, full of fragrant spices, soft and tender and cakey, still warm from the oven.  Softened butter dripping over the hot crumbs.  Strong coffee, with a splash of cream for me and sugar for my husband, and cold milk for our little boys.

Chocolate goes so nicely with pumpkin, and since I made a few loaves of pumpkin bread recently, sans chocolate, I thought these muffins deserved a little chocolate.  I used semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, which give the muffins a nice sprinkling of chocolate all throughout, but larger chocolate chips or chunks can certainly be used as well.
