    24 cans seemed a bit over the top, that is, until I watched the video and took a look at your photos. Yes. It’s true. I am now officially OBSESSED. Will have to make these ASAP. xoxoxo

    Okay – these ARE the perfect bite size. Too bad I would need about four of them because they look SOOOO good!

  9. Jessie

    Made this with the last ofthepumpkin from last years CSA. They were delish! Thanks for the recipe.

  10. Christina

    Hi there, this recipe says to bake it in a loaf pan….not muffin cups. How many muffins does it make? Am I missing something??

    • Gaby

      Hi Christina,

      Thanks for pointing that out. The recipe is fixed – and it makes about 24 muffins! Thanks

  11. Toni

    Just made these with the recipe cut in half – big mistake! My girls ate almost a dozen mini muffins already 🙂 I did use pumpkin pie spice instead of what is in the recipe and they were delicious. So glad I found your site!

    […] And I’ve been seeing pumpkin everything everywhere recently. Pumpkin lattes. Pumpkin Cookies. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin Cheesecake. Pumpkin cocktails. Okay maybe not the cocktails… but still. It’s […]

  13. Kayla

    These look delish! Did you use pumpkin puree or pumpkin pie mix in these? Thanks bunches 🙂

  14. Sari

    should All purpose flour be used or bread flour is ok? it’s all I have on hand! 🙂 Thanks!

    • Gaby

      all purpose. bread flour changes the protein and I don’t know if it works as well

  15. Susan Lenoir

    I printed your pumpkin choc chip muffin recipe and was surprised to see that you don’t have it branded.
    do that – if you’re coming up with awesome recipes, you should get credit!

  16. Joanna

    Gaby – we LOVE your pumpkin chocolate chip bars and the muffins look awesome. However, I have a question for you – are there really 3 cups of sugar in the muffins? The reason I ask is there is only one cup total (brown and white sugar) in the bars and so 3 cups seems like too much sugar. Could you please confirm right amount? Thank you!!

    • Gaby

      I haven’t tested it with either of those so I can’t say with any certainty

  17. Bridget Cangany

    Is it possible to add protein powder to these? I made these today and thought they would be easy to add protein to, but have never done anything like this!

  18. Amanda

    Would adding a mashed banana and/or some shredded zucchini work? Always trying to sneak in more fruits or veggies for my littles!

  19. Elizabeth

    Bring on all things pumpkin! Just made some pumpkin snickerdoodles and I believe these pumpkin muffins are next on my list! Love this recipe, Gaby! Hope you’re having fun in New York 🙂

  20. Gaby

    I just made these and they are delicious 🙂 The combination of pumpkin and chocolate chip is perfect! I took them out closer to the 30 minute mark. I’ll definitely make them again, thank you!
