These muffins are dense and extremely moist, with the perfect amount of seasonal pumpkin flavor. Adding the chocolate chips is optional, but highly recommended.
I made these twice: once with well-drained homemade pumpkin purée and once with organic canned pumpkin: there was little to no difference in taste/texture.
If you choose not to add the chocolate chips, you can drizzle a little extra maple syrup on top before serving, if you like.
