Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bran Muffins

These muffins are great as a super filling grab-and-go breakfast. The pumpkin and chocolate chips taste yummy together and serve as a tasty spin on typical bran muffins. These are thick, dense muffins and do a great job keeping you full for breakfast or a snack. My mom came up with this recipe and any time she mentions she made these I seem to turn up to visit within a day or so. It’s a not a coincidence. Thanks Mom!

  6. I am definately going to make these for my kids for a perfect breakfast before school..I will throw in some flax seed and a bit of protein powder as well but they love pumpkin muffins so these should be a hit!!

  7. Could you omit the white flour and use all ww flour?

  8. Will omitting the walnuts alter the PP value?
