Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Chips Recipe

Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Chips

Can you smell coffee? I can! Every morning, when I wake up half awake, the first thing I do is make a fresh pot of coffee. I just love the aroma! I can't talk to anyone until I have my first sip of coffee, and the fresher the better. I grind my coffee beans every morning and I like my coffee dark, no sugar, no milk. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I am always hungry in the morning. Some days I'll have toast and peanut butter, other days I eat a bowl of overnight oats with bananas, but I also sometimes indulge in homemade muffins. It's a quick grab-and-go breakfast that the whole family can enjoy. These muffins are so moist and they have just the right amount of spice to complement the pumpkin flavor. I added dark chocolate chips and when the muffins are still warm they melt in your mouth. You might have to grab more than one before you leave the house.

As a Brand Ambassador for Hamilton Beach Canada I have the chance to try small appliances and was excited when I received this Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Programmable Coffeemaker and Custom Grind Coffee Grinder in metallic red. I don't usually buy appliances in red, but this color is so nice that that might have to change. I love the pop of color in my kitchen and I can't wait to show off my new coffeemaker to my family when I have them over for New Year's Eve. I won't have to worry about forgetting to make coffee, having a programmable coffeemaker makes it that much more convenient. One less thing to think about that night! And I can make the coffee regular or bold which will make everyone happy.

Hamilton Beach Knows Breakfast

Since most of you lead busy lives and are on the go during the week, Hamilton Beach has a new product that makes breakfast in five minutes: the Breakfast Wrap Maker! Learn how to make your first wrap by visiting Life In The Suburbs. I'm craving a wrap right now just by looking at the pictures.
