These are the best fall time muffins I've ever made. They're good for you too =) and just as good without the chips.
You have to try these!!!
Plus I like how easily they come out of the muffin tins.. compared to other recipes I've tried.

Thanks for posting these...they made a great addition to our Thanksgiving Day menu! Next time I will cut down the amount of brown sugar (I'll try 1c.) as they were alittle sweet for my taste with the butterscotch morsels. Another one of your posts that I've added to our family cookbook! Diane

These were very easy to make and turned out well. I got 21 muffins out of one batch. These have a very strong butterscotch flavor and having one was enough, which is good for my waistline :) My family agreed that these were good for a change, but not their favorite.

...so I had to eat the batch myself! : ) It wasn't a terrible sacrifice, though, because I thought they were very good. My only complaint was that the chips tended to get a little watery as they dissolved into the muffin.

I did a few things differently, though:
*I used 1 1/2 cups white flour and 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour.
*I used 1 cup brown sugar, not 1 1/2.
*The recipe made 24 muffins for me, not 18.

These were really good. I made them using my last can of pumpkin from the holiday season. :) I used wheat flour and honey instead of white flour and sugar and they still turned out plenty fluffy and sweet.

My hubby liked these more than I did - I have a recipe for Butterscotch Gingerbread cookies that sets the bar quite high for my tastes, though. I replaced 1 c flour with whole wheat and used 1/4 c applesauce and 1/4 c oil. I also thought my chips got watery, and I wonder if it wasn't the off brand chips? I don't have such a problem with my cookies but can't remember what chips I usually buy. I ended up with every bit of 24 muffins, too.

Edit - I tried Nestle chips and still thought they were a bit watery but better. I also ran short of eggs (only had 3) and used 1 T ground flax seed plus 3 T of water, and I thought they were better than the first ones!

This an excellent recipe, and I love that it's low in fat and the pumpkin adds a lot of nutritional value. They taste a little like my favorite carrot muffins. Moist, flavorful, and healthy--will make again.

This has been a family favorite since we tried the recipe over a year ago. I even froze the left over muffins and it made for an easy breakfast for the mornings when we were on the go. I definitely recommend these muffins!!!
