Warning: these are crazy addictive
I know it’s no longer pumpkin season, but I LOVE pumpkin and like to have it all year around. Especially when pumpkin is combined with chocolate – it’s pretty much the best. thing. ever. That’s probably why I love these gluten free and vegan pumpkin chocolate chip muffins so much.
They are tender, moist, delicious, have a nice crumb, and are simply A-Mazing. Plus, they are super easy to make and kid-approved – I had to cut my kids off at 3 muffins each!
They are perfect for breakfast (I think they’re healthy enough for breakfast!), dessert, lunchboxes, or a grab-and-go snack for any time of the day. And while I haven’t tried it yet, I imagine they will freeze beautifully 🙂
