If you’re only making ONE pumpkin recipe this season, it has GOT to be this one!

 These little pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are perfection on every possible level!

The taste, the fluffy and moist texture, and the nutrition. These pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are amazingly soft and moist, and they are not grainy or eggy like some paleo muffins can be.

No tolerance for these kinds of muffins over here, uh uh! We love treats and desserts made healthier with wholesome and nutritious ingredients, but they gotta taste fantastic!

Of course, the dark chocolate chips are optional, but why would you skip them? Half of my excitement today comes from the choc chips – because, a gazillion chocolate chips in a mouthful is always something to be excited about.

The other half comes from all the concentrated fall flavors that make me want to curl up on the couch in a blanket by the fire. It may become too hot too quickly, but I don’t care – as long as my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are easily reachable.

Pumpkin puree + pumpkin spice, they’ve got all your favorites here!

May I recommend something so that you don’t devour them all at once?

Either give some of these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to your friends and neighbors if you’re feeling generous OR keep one or two and freeze the rest once they’ve cooled completely.

Then just pop one muffin in the microwave for 15-20 seconds when you’ve got a sweet craving (trust me, you’ll have one) and enjoy a warm delicious pumpkin muffin. The best part? The melting choc chips!

  1. These look great. I really like that they don’t have coconut flour, as that tends to cause stomach problems for me and my daughter. I will try making these tomorrow. Soon I will go to be dreaming of these!

  2. These look freaking amazing! And why would you ever not want to add those yummy chocolate chips? Haha, that’s where all the fun is, right?
