Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe
"When I was trying to modify my mom's pumpkin bread recipe to cut down on the fat and cholesterol, I came up with these moist sweet muffins," explains Kathy Fannoun of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. "My kids love them...and they get a healthy dose of vitamin A from the pumpkin without even knowing it!"
