Pumpkin Bread

I can’t decide which is a better perk of the fall season: good running weather or pumpkin-everything. It’s a close call.

Not only is pumpkin amazingly delicious, it is also sups healthy. 

That means I can eat a lot of pumpkin and it’s still okay, right?

I also used this batter recipe [and added some dark chocolate chips 😉 ] for some perfect little muffs!
