Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I hope you're not completely sick of apple and pumpkin recipes!  I'm having so much fun coming up with fall-inspired recipes, and I can't wait to continue sharing them with you.  I'm going to try to space them out with some non-apple or pumpkin recipes though, so that you don't get tired of the fall recipes before I share them all.  Today though, I want to share these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins...

I brought a plate of these muffins to work, to my in-laws, and to my parents.  They got rave reviews.  I love the added sweetness from the chocolate chips and the slightly crunchy streusel topping puts these over the top...literally!

Before we get to the recipe, I have a little announcement.  Since I didn't celebrate my blogiversary this year, or a significant post number, I have decided to celebrate my followers.  You all are what makes blogging so much fun--I love the feedback I get from posts and the new friends I've made through blogging.  That being said, I am so close to hitting 200 followers, so when I do hit that milestone, I have a giveaway planned for you!  I think we can hit 200 by the end of the year, so stay tuned!

  1. That streusel looks particularly yummy!!! I'm loving all of your apple and pumpkin recipes, btw! :)

  2. These look wonderful! I like the streusel topping. :)

  3. These look so delicious. I would need to sit with a nice cup of hot tea and enjoy one of these with no children around. So much sweetness and goodness should be enjoyed in peace.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
