Each Fall, I over-indulge in all things pumpkin. Come December, I really believe that I’m never going to eat anything pumpkin ever again.
But, after a long, cold winter and all of the light, fresh foods of Spring and Summer, I find myself 100% back in comfort food mode just in time for the season. Seriously, give me all of the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and sweet pumpkin-y treats. All of them.
I’ve mentioned before that I was really late to the game when it came to pumpkin desserts. For whatever crazy reason, I really didn’t think I’d like pumpkin and so I was reluctant to try it until a couple of years ago. It was love at first bite, and bittersweet, as I realized exactly what I had been missing all those years! On the bright side, this left a lot of opportunity to create and share new pumpkin recipes!
I absolutely love Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, as these were my first tango with that delicious gourd! This year, I decided to take everything I love about those cookies (the pumpkin, chocolate, and moistness!) and create an equally delicious pumpkin spice muffin with loads of chocolate chips! I also threw some oats into the mix for added texture and heartiness.
I am happy to report that every single bite of these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins is bursting with an amazing combination of pumpkin spice and sweet chocolate in a moist, fluffy muffin!
These muffins are easy to make and freeze well too! They are the perfect Fall treat, but also great as a quick breakfast or snack while on-the-go!
How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe
Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
Grease a standard muffin pan or line with paper liners.
Whisk together and then combine with the dry ingredients until everything is moist.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Fill each muffin well 3/4ths of the way full.
Add extra chocolate chips to the tops, if desired.
Bake 28-32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
For muffins, I like to line a basket or dish with a pretty napkin or towel and pile the muffins up high!
How to Freeze Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
To freeze muffins, allow them to fully cool. Then wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Alternatively, you can add them all to a plastic freezer bag.
Allow to defrost at room temperature or place an unwrapped muffin on a napkin and microwave for approximately 30 seconds.
