Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins are the perfect fall breakfast or snack! These pumpkin muffins are filled with pumpkin spices, made with white whole wheat flour, and a lotta chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

At the first sight of pumpkin puree at my grocery store, I seriously stock up. I know it sells out a lot of times and I bake a LOT with pumpkin in the fall. The first thing I always make is a big batch of these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins. They’re perfectly spiced from cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, and I absolutely love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. The muffins are incredibly moist and tender, and I promise this will be your new go-to pumpkin muffin recipe!

Ingredients in Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

  • Sugar – I use granulated white sugar in these pumpkin muffins.
  • Canola Oil – canola oil is great because it is flavorless and makes these pumpkin muffins super tender.
  • Pumpkin Puree – unsweetened pumpkin puree is used in this recipe. Be sure not to use pumpkin pie filling!
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Spices – Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger give these pumpkin muffins delicious pumpkin spice!
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • White Whole Wheat Flour – I love using white whole wheat flour because it adds some whole grains without making the muffins dense. You can use all-purpose flour, too.
  • Semi Sweet or Dark Chocolate Chips

How to Make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe for pumpkin muffins comes together very easily and you don’t even need a mixer for it.

Mix the wet ingredients and spices. To start, whisk together the sugar, oil, eggs, pumpkin, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Add the flour. Then fold in the flour, followed by the chocolate chips.

Bake. Evenly divide the muffin batter in 2 12-cup muffin pans. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-17 minutes. You want the edges slightly golden and the middle no longer shiny. Be careful not to over bake!

I loved these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins warm from the oven with a little butter slathered on them. We ate them all week long – a bonus of a recipe making 24 muffins!

Storage. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
