There are two things I love about this recipe. Actually three. First thing, they’re easy as pie. Two bowls, no special tricks. Second,  they are really really moist. Not soggy moist, because ewe, gross… we’ve all been there and it’s not a pretty moment. Fear not, that is not what’s happening with these muffins, these are just perfectly moist.

And the third thing I love? Chocolate chocolate and more chocolate. I’m gonna let you in a little secret. I always stir only half of the the chocolate chips into the muffin batter. The other half I save until the batter is in the muffin tins. Then I sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips right on top. This way you can make sure you get chocolate in ever. single. bite. And that’s it! The secret to these chocolate-loaded muffins. Dig in!

Yum, one more pumpkin recipe I have to make this fall. Looks delicious!

I love your baking pans!!!!!

    Thank you! They actually belong to my mother, she’s into old Victorian things and her house is full of antiques! She has good taste! 🙂

I’ve been looking for a fun recipe with pumpkin in it – this looks great.

But …

I need to know what temp to bake at! 🙂

What temperature do you bake them at?

    Oops! Sorry about that – bake at 350! I’ve updated the recipe. Thank you! 🙂

Seriously! Your stuff always amazes me. And your photography! I have to say you are one of my favorite bloggers to idolize 🙂

I just made these and they look and smell wonderful just out of the oven! Can’t wait till they cool to taste one! Thank you for the recipe!

I just made these and took them out of the oven. They look and smell delicious! I can’t wait until they cool so I can taste one! Thank you for the recipe!

These look delicious! I feel a little silly for asking but I am new to baking – for the pumpkin puree, if you get the typical sized canned pumpkin, would one can be enough? I’m not sure how to convert the ounces of the can to the 1 1/2 cups in the recipe here. Thanks for any advice!

    You would probably need two small cans or one large can with some left over. 🙂

These were delicious! I substituted date sugar for the brown sugar, and maple syrup for the white sugar and they were great!

    Ooh, good to know those substitutions worked out!

Does this recipe make 6 or 12 muffins? Can’t wait to try them!

Wonderful recipe, Thank You. I used Pamela’s Gluten Free All Purpose Flour & they turned out fab.

Your thoughts/tips for turning this recipe into Mini Muffins? For those little toddler hands plus I have a potluck thing at work…for example how long do you think it would be best to bake them?

    Sorry this is a little late Carol but you could prepare them the same way and bake them in mini muffin tins for probably 5-8 minutes less baking time? As soon as an inserted toothpick comes out clean (besides a few crumbs) they’re good to go!

I made these and they turned out great! Used one small can of pumpkin. I didn’t have any pumpkin spice, but I added a few sprinkles of clove. Delicious.

Thank you for a recipe that uses an entire (15 oz) can of pumpkin! Plus I can get 12 regular muffins and 24 mini muffins from one batch!
