Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Quite a while back, I shared a favorite family recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin cake.  Today, I was inspired to make a double batch into pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to help stock the freezer for a quick breakfast treat or a snack.  What a fabulous aroma in the kitchen on a blustery day here in Alaska!

Making them is super, duper easy to do.  You will find the recipe after these photos from our recent baking process.  Just alter the baking time based on the muffin size (mini, regular, extra large, or muffin top.)

Ingredients Ready

Folding in the chocolate chips

A cup of tea helps to complete a wonderful snack.

A great afternoon snack

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Serves: 18
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 can pumpkin (small can)
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients by hand, folding in the chocolate chips at the end.
  3. Pour into a greased tube pan.
  4. Bake for 22 to 26 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Typically, I cut back the amount of sugar and chocolate chips in the recipe a little without any loss of flavor. Also, I usually do all soft whole wheat flour or a blend of the whole wheat and white flour to up the nutritional value. You can make mini-muffins as well, just cutting down the cooking time to around 18 minutes.
