Pumpkin Muffins with Cinnamon Chips and Walnuts

When I saw the pumpkin muffins on Two Peas and Their Pod, I knew I would make them immediately. I’ve been craving pumpkin lately and thought the muffins looked really delicious. My son and I had a great time making them together. They smelled so delicious while baking and we couldn’t wait to try them. My daughter was thrilled to see these muffins waiting for her when she got home from school. They were a HUGE hit with both kids – double thumbs up. They asked if they could have them for breakfast the next day. Thanks Maria!
