Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins



Pumpkins are everywhere these days. So much so that you are probably sick of them by now! However, before you stop using pumpkin flavor for good this fall, I think that a batch of these muffins are in order. I love a good pumpkin muffin, as I told you last year, but nothing can beat them once chocolate is added. The flavor of mini chocolate chips, the variety of spices, plus the pumpkin all combine to make one delicious snack or breakfast food. After making these for the first time myself, I found that the amount of muffins made wasn’t enough. I suggest doubling the ingredient amounts, because the recipe only makes twelve. And you’ll obviously want more than that :)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Adapted from Averie Cooks


  • 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons medium molasses
  • 1 cup chocolate chips {mini or regular – whatever you prefer!}

to make

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, spices, and salt.
  3. Mix in the sugars, pumpkin, oil, milk, and molasses. Be careful not to over mix; it is a thick batter.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Grease twelve muffins cups.
  6. Pour the batter about 3/4 the way full in each cup.
  7. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the tops are puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool in the pan before taking out to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy!

Have a terrific day!
