The Best Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Posted on Oct 2, 2011 in Food | 5 comments

These Pumpkin muffins are a staple in our house.  As soon as the weather turns cool ,there is always a fresh plate of these on the counter.  They are a serious crowd pleaser, even with the kiddos.

These are so simple and delicious.  You will want to make them over and over too. My mother-in law passed this recipe on to me.  I think It started with a Weight Watchers Recipe, but the chocolate chips and Sugar sprinkles probably don’t ruin that idea.   Here is what you will need:

Just a few ingredients and you have a super delicious fall treat that the whole family will love!  These are great for breakfast too.

My hubby loves the chocolate chip version , but I love it with raisins.  Instead of chocolate chips I add a combination of Craisins, golden raisins, and regular raisins.  They are delicious both ways and the kids eat both kinds without complaining!  Give both versions a try and see which you like best.

  1. Mmmm….these look super yummy and really easy! I think I’m with matt on the chocolate chip side of the fence! Definitely need to try these out.

    • They are so simple and satisfying! I can’t believe I have never tried to feed them to you when you are over :)

  2. You can also use a devils food cake mix for some really yummy chocolate pumpkin muffins. The kids love them!

    • I have made these using almost every kind of cake mix and they turn out great! Haven’t tried that one yet though, we will give it a go! I’m sure it will be great.

  3. I have a batch in the oven now. I added a banana that needed to be used and some wheat germ for extra fiber/nutrients. I wonder if you could add oats. I guess they might need more liquid then? Excited to taste them! Thanks for the easy recipe!
