Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

I confess to being a pumpkin-flavored-everything LOVER!

I actually have no shame about this at all! And neither should you! And there's something extra delicious about pumpkin + chocolate! Am I right?!

I don't follow a Paleo diet, but I do enjoy Paleo desserts because they don't use traditional, processed white flour. Almond flour and coconut flour are the only ones I try to eat!

So without further ado, here is one of my favorite pumpkin treats you can enjoy for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or as a dessert!
