These easy to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are simple to whip up and turn out moist and delicious every time!
Calling all you pumpkin lovers: I have a delicious recipe for you today! It is moist pumpkin chocolate chip muffins – they truly are heavenly! I am all about nice and moist muffins and this recipe doesn’t disappoint.
The key here is watching your baking time, if you over-bake them they will not be moist. If you follow the recipe and keep a close eye on the time, you should have perfectly moist pumpkin chocolate chip muffins in no time!
These Pumpkin Muffins Freeze Beautifully
I am a huge fan of pumpkin, and it turns out Clay is as well. He will eat a whole muffin by himself, he just loves them! These work great to freeze, and then take them out when you want one or two and just let thaw.
You can toss them in the microwave as well for a few seconds to warm up, I prefer to let them thaw by themselves and eat when still a little cold!
Non-Sticky Silicone Muffin Pan
I was also going to say if you haven’t tried using silicone muffin pans, they are really nice! These are BPA Free, dishwasher safe, and heat resistant up to 450 degrees! These make the cleanup so simple, no mess, or stuck on gunk, it just wipes right off!
As well as being great for baking cakes, these pans can also be used for your other culinary creations such as for cooking tartlets, mini cheesecakes, small chicken pot pies, quiches and lasagnes and even as molds for making soap!
They are truly a great piece to have in your kitchen stock!
So, let’s get to the recipe, this is very easy to mix up, and I always use my KitchenAid mixer, it just makes the prep easier for me, but if you don’t have one, a spatula or hand mixer works just as good!
One more thing is that this recipe calls for canned pumpkin. If you want to make these even more homemade, you can use this recipe to make your own pumpkin puree in the Instant Pot.
