Choco Chip Pumpkin Muffins (S)
Are you ready to “pumpkin spice all the things” this season? We are too, which is why we created these scrumptious pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to start getting our pumpkin on! These muffins marry two of our most favorite things… our all new Trim Healthy Chocolate Chips with the flavors of pumpkin.
Trim Healthy Chocolate chips have no fillers (such as dextrin, maltitol, or inulin) that most sugar-free chocolate chips use. They are smooth on the tongue and sweetened with only pure stevia and erythritol to create that semi-sweet taste just right for baking. Paired with pumpkin… you have a perfect union! These muffins are delicious for breakfast or an afternoon snack paired with a Trimmy or plain ol’ coffee with cream.
