  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a standard size muffin baking pan with nonstick spray.
  • Measure out the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, oil and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together. 
  • Add in the chocolate chips and stir to combine. Do not over mix, just stir until everything is incorporated into the batter.
  • Using a big scoop, evenly distribute the batter into the muffin pan. 
  • Bake your muffins for 18-20  minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes. 


  • Be sure to grease your pan before adding the batter. If you don't you risk the muffins getting stuck to the pan.
  • Don't over mix the batter, everything should be just incorporated. If you over-mix, they won't be as light and fluffy.
  • Ovens tend to run at different temperatures, so be sure to check the muffins around 16 minutes to make sure that they don't over bake.
  • Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes before enjoying!
