Pumpkin Muffins

A snowed in day. A busy oven.
These muffins are simple and delicious and perfect for a day tucked inside.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup of oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups pumpkin
2 cups of flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Beat eggs with a mixer for several minutes until they get a bit fluffy. Add in the sugar and continue to mix on high while you stream in the oil and vanilla. Add in the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Fold with spatula just until flour is incorporate. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. If you're having a chocloate day, add in half a bag of chocolate chips. The combination of pumpkin with chocolate is one of the best combos in baking.

Divide in half for 2 small loaves or into muffin pans. This will reduce the baking time. Check at 25 minutes of baking at 325. Done when toothpick comes out clean.
