Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are the perfect fall muffin!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin

We really like pumpkin desserts in our house. One of the things that I love about fall foods are pumpkin recipes. These muffins are one of our favorites.

I have been making this recipe for years. My kids love them, so it is one of my go to fall muffin recipes.

My daughter likes them so much she wanted them two years ago instead of a birthday cake. I decided to make them into a cake. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9×13 pan and used cool whip as the frosting. She thought it was great. It was good, but our favorite way to eat them is still as muffins.

I used to make these a little healthier, using whole wheat pastry flour in them. It worked really well and no one complained about the whole wheat in them. Now I make them gluten free using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour blend.

Yes, I used to use whole wheat flour all the time and now I use gluten free. The last ten years has brought a lot of changes in our cooking, but no matter how you make these, they are delicious!

We love these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for breakfast or for snacks. I have sent them to work many times with my husband and his staff at work loves them.

If you are looking for a delicious pumpkin muffin recipe give this one a try!
