last week i spent a few days out in palm springs with some talented ladies, an inspiring and fun weekend! i know that the sound of palm spring and pumpkin muffins don't really go together, but i've been craving pumpkin anything for a while. to feed my pumpkin craving and to fuel my friend lindsay on the drive to palm springs, i made these pumpkin muffins. really happy with how they turned out and hope they satisfy your pumpkin cravings too!
if you prefer you can leave off the chocolate chips and pecans – i love the added texture and flavor!
