Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have a confession…I love pumpkin, but I am far from obsessed. So, when the “all pumpkin spice, all the time” season rolls around, I cringe a little. Only because I prefer my pumpkin a little more subtle. Maybe even balanced out with a little chocolate! These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are sweet with a little cinnamon and spice!

I’m using both milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips along with my pumpkin puree!

I’m also using Sugar 2.0 in these. It’s made from 50% real cane sugar and 50% Probiotic Fiber. Which is awesome because that means we can easily cut our sugar intake in half! Perfect for us, since my son loves to eat muffins before school in the morning!

In addition to some bigger muffins, I’m making some minis as well. This recipe works well for either 12 regular muffins or 24 minis!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Preheat oven to 375. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.

In a large bowl mix your dry ingredients (Sugar 2.0, flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, & nutmeg).

Next, mix in your eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Finally, add the majority of your chocolate chips. Saving some to place on top of your muffins.

Using an ice cream scoop divide your muffin mixture in to your liners. Make sure to evenly distribute. Add the rest of the chocolate chips to the tops.Bake regular muffins for about 22 minutes, check with a toothpick to see if they are thoroughly cooked in the center. Mini muffins can be cooked for about 12-15 minutes before checking. Cool before serving!

    My kids love muffins for breakfast but I also don’t want them starting the day with a bunch of sugar so these are perfect for our family too.

    These look wonderful. I love pumpkin spice, but I also like things a little more subtle, and chocolate is always a great idea!

    Love the fall because it is pumpkin season too, so many yummy treats can be made with pumpkin and then paired with chocolate sounds like a perfect bite. Like the fact that you are using white chocolate too.
