  1. What fabulous muffins! Chocolate and cinnamon are a perfect and very tasty combination with pumpkin. Well done dear, bye bye

  2. I adore anything pumpkin! These muffins look truly wonderful.

  3. Lovely! I too love the combination here. Looks so moist.

  4. My roommate made some similar, some plain, some chocolate chip and I have to say, the chocolate chips were amazing with the pumpkin.

  5. It's funny that as a child...I just couldn't stand desserts with squash...and now I just can't stop using this wonderful ingredient.
    Great recipe for me to add to my repertoire ;o) Thanks.

    Have a great day and flavourful wishes,

  6. I loooove this. I love the combination of chocolate and pumpkin!

  7. This would be fun for a lunch with my mother tomorrow. The aroma of it cooking fills me with anticipation. I had a spread of "fingers," hot dog mummies and witches brooms for my kids when they returned home late from labs. They may be in their early 20's - but their eyes just lit up!

  8. Hey Claudia,
    Pumpkin is in the air...oh, and in your oven too!
    Happy Halloween!

  9. Yum, I was just thinking I need to make some pumpkin bread or cake, Claudia. I might make these for my Cauldron Boy's breakfast tomorrow!

  10. I bought two pumpkins Claudia. Was looking for a good pumpkin muffin and this is it! Muffins don't last very long around our house. They are much easier for dad to grab n eat.

    The first I made bread pudding with, which I'll be posting soon since it's I used the oatmeal bread from the Tastemaker program.

    BTW I made your apple cake, it was awesome!

  11. Scrumptious muffins - pumpkin and chocolate chips sounds like a terrific combo!

  12. This sounds fantastic! I so love the idea of chocolate and pumpkins ... and in a muffin! YUM!

  13. Pumpkin and chocolate - what's not to like! Perfect fall or Halloween treat :)

  14. OMG these muffins look amazing. I love everything about them. The pumpkin craze this time of year is the best. I'm making pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tonight. Nice job.

  15. Your bread and muffins are beautiful sights Claudia! One of my favorite combos - I am loving all the baking you have been doing!

  16. chocolate and pumpkin, a fall romance in the shape of a muffin

  17. I'm loving all the chocolate and pumpkin recipes popping up all over the blogosphere! And I've used canned pumpkin puree only once, out of curiosity - still, I have to say I prefer fresh!

    Love your muffins - they're giving me the itch to stir up a batch :D

  18. These muffin sounds wonderful. Love the addition of chocolate chip. Must be so luscious! Thank you for sharing. Hope you're going to enjoy this weekend. And wishing you a very Happy Halloween.
    Cheers, Kristy

  19. You got me going again. I'm picking up pumpkins this weekend then ...LOOK OUT KITCHEN because I'm roasting up a storm.
