Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of my favorite things that my mom used to make growing up was these Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. She would make a huge batch by quadrupling the recipe. Then, she would freeze them. I would grab some for breakfast every morning on my way out of the door to school.

Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

I had it down to a science. If I grabbed 5 muffins, I would microwave them about 30 seconds. The bread would be warm, but the chocolate chips would still be slightly frozen. Just the way I liked them. Hopefully, you will like them too.


Dry Ingredients:

1 2/3 C All Purpose Flour
3/4 C Sugar
1/2 C Mini Chocolate Chips
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt

Wet Ingredients:

2 Large Eggs, whisked
3/4 C Canned Pumpkin
1/2 C Margarine, melted
1/4 C Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla


Pumpkin Ingredients

First, mix all of the dry ingredients together. This consists of the flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, sugar, salt and chocolate chips. Blend together with a spoon or spatula.

Second, in a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together with a whisk.

Third, add the rest of the wet ingredients. This includes the pumpkin puree, butter, milk and vanilla.

Pumpkin wet

Fourth, add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.

Pumpkin Add

Fifth, with a spatula, stir the wet and dry ingredients together until blended.

Pumpkin Mixed

Sixth, place spoon fulls of batter into a greased muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Pumpkin pans

Once your muffins are done, allow them to cool and enjoy. They do well in a bag on the counter for a while or in the freezer if you want them to last a while. One big can of pumpkin will 4X the recipe.

Pumpkin bake

I love pumpkin flavored things. This is one of my favorite recipes as a kid. I hope your family can enjoy them as much as I do.

  1. These little minis are so adorable, and I love the idea of having them warm while the chips are a little frozen – mmm I must try these!

  2. Oh those look so good! I love pumpkin recipes for fall!! My grandmother always made a pumpkin bread when I was growing up that was always a favorite of mine. I have to try these!

  3. I’ve had tons of pumpkin-flavored things but I’ve never had pumpkin and chocolate together! I’ll definitely have to give this a try.

  4. I love that these are mini Muffins and we love muffins at my house and these look so delicious. I am going to make them for me and the kids.
