Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and Carol

Yes. That's what the title said. Pumpkin and chocolate chip. Sound odd? It's delicious! These are so moist, and filling. You really must try them!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 15 or 16 oz. can of pumpkin
1 c. oil
3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 c. (12 oz.) chocolate chips

In a large bowl beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil until smooth. Combine flour soda, powder, salt, and cinnamon. Slowly add to pumpkin mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Grease muffin tins. Bake at 400 for 16-20 minutes.


You may recall that I held a contest to win an apron. Carol from Christian Women Online Blog won. The problem is that I haven't heard from her since I completed the apron. Oh dear! I can't leave her a message because this blog is written by lots of women. I don't know if she reads all of the comments or not. She doesn't have a personal blog that is active. Well, at least not on Blogger. But Randi let me know how to find her at Typepad. See comments!

Does anyone know how to get in touch with her?

Perhaps she is on vacation.

Perhaps she is sick.

Perhaps she saw the pictures of the completed apron and thought that it was hideously UGLY and doesn't want to claim it. Oh my. I do hope that she is well.

Update: Carol has contacted me and her apron is in the mail!

I LOVE chocolate chip pumpkin bread!!! I'll have to compare my recipe with yours to see if they are alike or if yours will replace mine! :0)

Have a blessed day!

Randi said...

I think that this is the Carol you are looking for:

She has a CWO graphic on her left sidebar. Best of luck finding her because i know she will love the apron you made!

It's 7am and I slept in til 6:45..odd for me. To go along with my cup of steaming hot coffee a scone would go so nicely. Just put a really big one here on this pretty plate..wonchaplease? Yum.

I have to make these.

I hope you hear from/about Carol soon. But if not, I'll gladly take her place. The apron is *lovely* and was made with love. :o)

Jennifer said...

pumpkin and chocolate!
something I must try :o)

I'm going to take this recipe to the beach with us next week ~ my mother-in-law wants us to try some new things :o)

thanks for the recipe!

I have also made these using soy flour and Splenda. They turned out fine. Thought that you might be interested since you are "watching". Have a great trip to the beach!

Karen said...

It's a strange combination, but it works! I tried it in a loaf bread recipe, and it's really good! My recipe is a little different, so I'll give yours a try, too. My family loves anything pumpkin, and chocolate.
I hope Carol responds. It was so sweet of you to make it so quickly for her.

Kelley said...

Oh Tracy...all these wonderful recipes! You're killing me!

Let me know if you need help with a template or graphics... I would be glad to help! *Ü*

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

You are really trying to make me blow my diet! LOL I just printed the recipes for the pumpkin chocolate chip bread and the pepperoni bread that I know my son is going to love!

Anna S said...

Thank you for sharing the muffin recipe, Tracy. I think those MUST be delicious, as I love pumpkin so much. Gotta try those :)

Christy said...

I am going to try those!! I love banana chocolate chip muffins, so I bet these are really good!!

Momma Roar said...

Oh, yum...chocolate does make the healthy stuff do down better :)
So glad to hear that you were in contact with Carol!

Ruth said...

That sounds like an interesting combination. Here's a dumb they taste like pumpkin pie?

Tracy, I simply wanted to say thank you tracy for visiting my blog. I read all the wonderful posts on other blogs and they really get me thinking all through my day. I'm still trying to get used to posting coherant thoughts, so stop back again sometime!

Gena said...

I'm glad you found Carol.

Also, I think pumpkin bread is the best. I'm sure that if you add chocolate chips, it can only be better. I'll be adding this to my recipe collection.

Trella said...

Sounds yummy! I am glad that Carol got in touch with you.
