Day 197: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops

Muffin tops (or muffies) are definitely the best kind of muffins ever invented. They are quick and easy and perfect for Fall!

You know that crispy muffin top with the fluffy inside? Well that's what a muffie basically is.

It's absolutely delicious in all ways! You don't even need any special equipment! Just a baking sheet.

Have you ever been to Panera Bread, the restaurant? That's where I first saw these chocolate chip muffies. It was so so good.

Aside from today I had only eaten plain chocolate chip muffies. But I heard that there are also pumpkin muffies, and I thought that would fit in with the theme of Fall better.

I also added chocolate chips so it would be a mixture of both the plain muffie and the pumpkin kind.
