Pumpkin chip muffins

I tried this recipe last weekend on New Year's Day. I usually make a pumpkin cheesecake for one of the holiday meals but didn't feel up to it this time. These were a great alternative. They didn't last long here either (and there are only two of us in the house!)

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes or until they test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing. Yield: 24 muffins ( submitted by Cindy Middleton, to Country Woman magazine May/June/95)

I'll be linking up to the parties on the side and House of Hepworths Rock Your Recipes.
