Gluten-Free Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Muffins

"We are back from our week long trip to Hawaii and it suddenly feels like fall in Seattle! Baking during the fall/winter months is one of my absolute favorite activities. There are so many delicious and cozy ingredients and spices to choose from that its hard to decide what to make first! Pumpkin is a CLASSIC fall ingredients favorite and I thought why not just throw myself right into that fall baking (and also possible decorating as there is already some pumpkin decor in my house - too soon?) These pumpkin muffins are super moist, full of chocolatey chunks and use my favorite baking flour from Bobs Red Mill (1-1 Gluten Free Flour). For the milk chocolate chocolate chunks I used one of my local favorites - Theo Chocolates! All that's left to do is whip up a batch of these, sit back and watch the leaves fall!"
