Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

My friend, Melanie B., recently sent me this recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I made them the very day she emailed me the recipe and they were fantastic!

Pumpkin and chocolate is a winning combination in my book, and these muffins were so moist and delicious that once again, we ate the entire batch in record time.

Thanks Mel!

pumpkin chocolate chip muffin in blue muffin liner


  • 1 2/3 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 T. pumpkin pie spice (see note)
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 c. canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. chocolate chips


  1. Mix ingredients well and then add chocolate chips. Pour into greased muffin tin (or use muffin liners).
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Don’t overbake or they will be dry!


Pumpkin Pie Spice: if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, use the following combination: 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon cloves. Mix together and woila! – you have the equivalent of 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (and it is much cheaper than buying it premade). So for this recipe, you would need to triple the above amounts to equal one tablespoon pumpkin pie spice.
