Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Another Joanna Lund recipe....I really like the pumpkin flavor of these.  Plus, the addition of the nuts and chocolate chips puts them right up on my top 10 most loved snacks....LOL....I did change the recipe up a couple places...I use Splenda instead of Sugar Twin (when she made these recipes, Splenda hadn't been marketed in the US yet) and I also used Fage 0% Greek Yogurt instead of the Yoplait fat free.  The Fage 0% is so much thicker and taste better the recipes just the added taste that they need.  Not that they weren't good before, just now they are even better!

I know you don't care for sweets but thought you might like these....nutritional info is below the image.

I snagged the recipe card from Design House Digital.

Each serving equals:

  1. I thought you had made the recipe card too.

    This sound good but it has to many card for me maybe when I go back on WW I can give it a try because it is something I would like.

    Is that a Longenburger basket in the background?

  2. Nope.....I just 'borrowed' one...LOL

    Yes, that is a Longaberger basket in the background. I have a few of them plus some of the pottery but I don't use much of it. I have the Pottery lamp, the milk and cream pitchers, a pie plate and the cookie jar. All but the lamp is on display above the kitchen cabinets. Oh, also have the salt and pepper shakers. I think I liked the pottery better than the baskets..

    I've tried losing weight on the no carb diet before but I just craved the carbs too much..I could only eat so much meat and cheese! Plus, my sweet tooth was way too deprived. On this diet, I'm happy all the way around!

  3. I have several baskets but no pottery I quit buying them the price just kept going up and up and I decided they
    weren't worth it.
    Forgot to say I love the new photo. Your hair doesn't look as dark in this one. Lookin Good.
