 muffin papers.  Thoroughly mix flour, sugar, spice, baking soda, baking
 powder, and salt in a large bowl.  Break eggs into another bowl.  Add pumpkin
 and butter to eggs and whisk until well-blended.  Stir in chocolate chips and
 almonds.  Pour over dry ingredients and fold in just until moistened.  Scoop
 into tins and bake 20-25 minutes.
