Pumpkin Mmmmuffins

I originally posted this recipe 3 years ago!!  I’m not much of a pumpkin spice coffee lover (am I the only one??), but I do love these muffins.  Try the recipe, you might like them, too!


Although I don’t have them often, the pumpkin chocolate chip muffin is one of my favourite treats. There is a little bagel shop nearby that makes and serves them fresh everyday. They are moist, delicious, and quite large – almost a meal in themselves!

When on maternity leave, I would aimlessly push my stroller through the neighbourhood desperate for my child to sleep. My walks would usually take me by this bagel shop, and I would always stop in to grab a muffin and coffee.

Fast forward a few years, I realized I could try and make these muffins myself. A little search online lead me to this recipe. They are less than half the size of my bagel shop muffins, but they were moist and delicious. My family loved them.


Here is the recipe Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins from allrecipes.com:

3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin ** I used the whole can
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Grease and flour muffin pan or use paper liners.

Mix sugar, oil, eggs. Add pumpkin and water. In separate bowl mix together the baking flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.. Add wet mixture and stir in chocolate chips.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

    The muffins look delicious. Thanks for the recipe. I I don’t bake much anymore, but I bet I could make these! Trader Joes has a pumpkin chocolate chip bar mix that I make this time of year. I think I’ll replace them with your muffins. Happy Thursday.

      I think you could easily make these! I’ve had a similar product from Trader Joe’s and they were so good! Thanks for stopping by!

    I like pumpkin so these might just be up my alley especially with the edition of the Chocolate Chips.
