Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Heat oven to 350 F. Put almonds on a baking sheet pr pie pan and bake about 5 minutes, just until lightly browned; watch carefully so almonds dont burn. (You can also toast them in a toaster oven.) Slide almonds off the baking sheet so they cool quickly. Grease muffin cups, or use foil or paper baking cups. Thoroughly mix flour, sugar, pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Break eggs into another bowl. Add pumpkin and butter, and whisk until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds. Pour over dry ingredients and fold in with a rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened. Scoop batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed and springy to the touch in the center. Turn out onto a rack to cool. Wrap in a plastic bag and keep for 1 or 2 days. Reheat before serving.

One of the best muffins I've ever made or had, omitted the almonds just because I didn't have any. My husband doesn't really like pumpkin, but still LOVED these!

I left out the almonds. Didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I substituted 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, 1/4 tbsp ground ginger and 1/4 tbsp nutmeg
