Pumpkin Chocolate chip Muffins

A close up of a pumpkin chocolate chip muffin with a bite taken out of it

Soft pumpkin muffins with little kisses of mini chocolate chips and (optional) walnut pieces.  The pumpkin spices and bits of chocolate pair wonderfully together and feel perfectly at home during fall.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups Gluten Free Flour blend (I use Bob Red Mill's gluten free 1 to 1 four blend)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon (Ground)
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Clove (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Butter (Softened)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Mini Chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Walnuts -Measured then chopped smaller (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and prep muffin tins with liners.
  2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients,  whisk thoroughly, and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugar. Then add the pumpkin puree and milk and mix well.
  4. When this is completely mixed together, turn the mixer to low and slowly add the dry ingredients a little at a time.
  5. Once the wet and dry ingredients are mixed, stir in the chocolate chips and optional walnuts.
  6. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, fill the muffin tins with batter. These muffins will not rise a lot so you can fill them nearly to the top of the liners.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, till a toothpick comes out clean when pierced into the center. Allow to cool before serving.

I use these cupcake/muffin tins. They are a work horse in my kitchen and every cupcake and muffin has been baked in my set of tins.

I also keep a lot of liners on hand. Have fun with them like this elegant set, or this Halloween themed set.
