Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins



hanksgiving is more than a feast of turkey at our house. Every Thanksgiving the CC4DBE47-7068-4DE2-9B29-D31497DCD41F.jpgboys in our family get up early to play football. The much anticipated “Turkey-bowl” gets more hype than the Superbowl. It has become such an important part of our holiday festivities, that even before I get the bird in the oven, I get breakfast ready for my Thanksgiving athletes. When they return we eat breakfast while I listen to the stories of all their poultry glory. This post-game breakfast always includes these amazing pumpkin muffins. I often think that if we omitted the muffin paper they would more accurately be classified as cookies…but somehow calling them muffins makes me feel less guilty eating them for breakfast.


4 eggs

1 cup white sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

15 oz can pumpkin puree

1 1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 T. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a mixer combine eggs, sugars, pumpkin and oil beat until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients, setting aside chocolate chips.
  3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixer.

  5. On low speed add chocolate chips mixing until just incorporated.
  6. Fill paper muffin liners 3/4 full.
  7. Bake in oven preheated to 350° bake for 20 minutes.
