I am very excited to share this delicious recipe for Paleo Chocolate Chip & Walnut Pumpkin Muffins. I combined and changed around a few existing recipes I found online and came up with this new fall treat! Perfect for a breakfast treat, midday snack or even late night dessert…

Feel free to sub out the chocolate chips and walnuts for different fruits and/or nuts to make a flavor combination you enjoy best..

1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
crumbled walnuts (for topping)

Directions:

Spray a muffin tray with coconut oil or place in cupcake tins to prevent sticking.

Top each muffin with a few walnut pieces.
