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. They thaw in a flash so are great for quick breakfasts or snacks.

  1. 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 🙂

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

  3. 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!

  4. 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!!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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??

    1. Hi Christina,

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

  8. Great blog! And these muffins look scrumptious! Pumpkin AND chocolate chips? I think I will have to make these this weekend....
