Seems like we are always busy these days so here is a quick & easy recipe for Pumpkin Cupcakes!

After making a batch of my delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Granola I found myself with some extra pumpkin puree so I made these cupcakes.

Chocolate lovers can add a cup or so of chocolate chips to the batter before baking. I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate.

Since I love pumpkin chocolate flavor I decided to use chocolate frosting for these delicious cupcakes.

Feel free to use whatever flavor of frosting you want. A nice cream cheese frosting would pair really well with these pumpkin cupcakes.
