Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

 

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I was cleaning out my freezer and found some frozen pumpkin puree from November.  I roasted and prepped three pumpkins and then never ended up making pies.

As it’s April, I decided to try something different and make muffins. You can easily half the recipe to make one dozen, or make two so you have some to share.  It’s a quick and easy recipe and they were delicious.

Prep Time 10 Minutes

Cook Time 17 -20 Minutes

Servings 24 Muffins

Difficulty Easy

 

Ingredients

4 organic, preferably pastured Eggs

2 cups Rapadura or Organic Sugar

2 cups Organic Pumpkin Puree, either fresh, frozen or canned

1-1/2 cup melted pastured, unsalted butter or coconut oil

3 cups organic flour – whole wheat, unbleached or a blend

2 teaspoons Baking Soda

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1 teaspoon Celtic or Sea Salt

12 ounces, Organic Chocolate Chips

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°

2. Mix together the first 4 ingredients.

3. When mixed well, add the dry ingredients.

4. Mix 1/2 the package of the Chocolate Chips into the batter.

5. Fill well-greased or lined muffin tins 2/3 full of batter. Then, sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top of the batter. This spreads out your chips, instead of having it them at the bottom of the muffin. It looks pretty too.

6. Bake in 400° oven 17-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy!

  • oh how delicious these look! going to have to try them. thanks!

  • I came over from Pennywise Platters, and I’m so glad I did. I have a garden full of pumpkins waiting to be picked, and a family that love muffins. You’ve made some little people very happy here. I’ve had a little look around the rest of your blog too, and I like what I see. This is the sort of food I love, and the issues that concern us all.
