What’s better than pumpkin treats during fall? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Now you may be asking yourself, “What is there other than pumpkin pie?”, and the answer is pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

To kick off the start of fall, here is a quick and easy recipe to get you more excited about the season. These muffins can be great for breakfast, a snack, or just to have as a dessert. Personally, I love pumpkin treats and chocolate chip muffins, so this seems to be a heavenly combination. They are also not too difficult to conjure up, so they are not only delicious but easy to make too! Anyway, you probably just want the recipe for these delicious delights so here it is:

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Calories: 288kcal

Servings: 12



  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • 1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • ¾ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips (divided use)

  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray, or you can use paper liners. (If you use liners, still spray the liners so that the muffin doesn’t stick to the liner).

  2. Place the eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree, and oil into a bowl. Whisk until smooth.

  3. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and salt to the bowl. Stir until just combined. (Don’t over mix).

  4. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.

  5. Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups, and sprinkle the remaining ½ cup chocolate chips over the tops of the muffins.

  6. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  7. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, and then transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. Serve, or store the muffins in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


That’s it! I hope you enjoy!
