  1. I made your chocolate chip muffins and they look amazing!!! I haven’t tasted yet as they just came out of the oven…. my question is, these pumpkin muffins call for only 1 tsp baking powder, the chocolate chip called for 1tbsp! Why the difference? And will the pumpkin ones be as tall?? I’m making for a bake sale and the tall ones look amazing!

    1. There is more batter in the pumpkin ones, so the muffin cups are filled with more batter in the first place, so they don’t need to rise as much to be tall :) They always turn out big for me!

  2. If I could give this five stars I would! I added a teaspoon of each cloves and nutmeg to add more of a Fall flavor. So moist. I love it. I think this will be my new go to recipe.

  3. Made these following the recipe exactly and they are absolutely delicious!!!! Wonderful recipe! Thank you!!
