Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 24 people


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (or coconut oil)
  • 4 eggs
  • cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a mixer combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs, water and spices on medium speed. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix on low until everything is just combined. Lastly, add the chocolate chips and fold in with a spatula.
  • Transfer batter into 2 prepared muffin tins, about ⅔ of the way full, and sprinkle with a few extra chocolate chips on top. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until a knife is inserted in the middle and comes out clean. Transfer to cooling rack and let cool. (NOTE - baking time will vary depending on what style muffin tin you are using - so best bet is to check the muffins with a knife and once the knife comes out clean, they are done)


Muffins are perfect for freezing. Let cool completely before placing in an airtight container or zipper top freezer bag.
