Muffin Monday

At 4 pm, the clock seemed to stop. I didn’t think 5 pm was ever going to come, and it’s not because of my job. Sometimes Mondays are just like that. Okay, they’re always like that. Luckily Jen and Nichole, my two marketing coworkers felt the same way, and decided to plant themselves in my office for the last 40 minutes, where we bonded, I mean talked business. If they want to come and talk, by all means, I’m all for it, I just wasn’t going to be the one to initiate it. 😉

When I got home, I took a phone call from Ryan, my long-lost brother. Well, not really, but he does live 8 hours away in Harrisburg, PA with his college sweetheart. We actually all went to college together. Ryan graduated in 2008, Chelsey in 2009, and myself in 2010. He was the Captain of our University’s Racquetball team, when they met his sophomore year and her freshman year. They’re my absolute favorite couple, although I am grumpy how easy their relationship has evolved. She’s his first serious relationship and I swear he’s had it so easy, never any heartbreak!

After catching up with Ry, I headed out to Target to get some baking supplies for the healthy chocolate chip brownies I found on Pinterest. They were calling my name!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 1 package Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 15 oz. can of Pumpkin Puree
  • 5 oz or 2/3 cup Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix together cake mix and pumpkin puree until fluffy
  • Add in a majority of the chocolate chips
  • Spray a muffin pan and liners with cooking spray as it will prevent the muffins from sticking
  • Spoon batter into pan.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean

Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins… Yummm!

The batter is very thick and does not spread out in the muffin pan, so however you put it in, that’s how it will look when it comes out. They do rise JUST a little, so you can fill it to the top, as I did. These had to have been the best chocolate chip muffins I’ve ever had. It was incredibly moist, and when eaten right out of the oven, the chocolate chips were nice and gooey. After telling my Dad that I’d DEFINITELY make these again, he responded with, “Good, because I’ll definitely eat them again.”

Warm Gooey Goodness

After gobbling one up right away, I then proceeded to eat a good portion of this tub of juicy watermelon, a summer staple in my belly… I mean my house.

Perfect on a Hot Summer Night

Alright, I have to stop eating! Time to go relax with my new book.
