These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are perfectly moist, decadent, chocolatey, and delicious. They are the perfect chocolate muffins to make when fall arrives, and everyone craves pumpkin-inspired treats. These are some of our favorite muffins to make.

What we love most about these pumpkin muffins are how moist they are and how they have a nice balance of chocolate and pumpkin. Y’all are going to love these muffins!


  • Eggs – at room temperature
  • Neutral Oil, like sunflower seed or avocado oil
  • Cane Sugar and Coconut Sugar – we like how the coconut sugar as a little caramel flavor to the muffins
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cacao Powder and All-Purpose Flour
  • Spices: Salt, Cinnamon, Allspice, nutmeg
  • Baking Soda
  • Chocolate Chips – we used Hu’s Kitchen Baking Gems.


STEP 1: Ensure eggs are at room temperature before mixing them into the batter. I noticed that this helps with the rising of the muffins when they bake.

STEP 2: Whisk the wet ingredients together in a medium bowl.

STEP 3: Carefully stir in the dry ingredients with a spatula. Don’t overmix – you’ll want to see some streaks of the flour and cacao powder. At this point, stir in the chocolate chips.

STEP 4: Let the batter sit for at least 20 minutes. This helps with the rising of the muffins when they bake.

STEP 5: Bake for 20-22 minutes and remove to continue baking for 10 minutes in the muffin tins before removing to cool on a wired rack.

These are pretty simple to make. You only need one bowl and a muffin tin, either a jumbo 6-hole muffin tin or a medium 12-hole muffin tin.

Are these muffins freezer-friendly?

Yes, these are freezer-friendly chocolate pumpkin muffins! First, wrap the muffins individually in freezer-safe bags. Then, reheat them in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds or thaw them at room temperature when ready to enjoy them.

Can these muffins be made Vegan?

Yes! To make these muffins Vegan, use two flax eggs instead of regular eggs (2 tablespoons flaxseed meal + 4 tablespoons water).

How long do these muffins last at room temperature?

If stored in a glass container at room temperature, these muffins last up to 1 week. After that, I like to reheat the muffins in the microwave for 10 seconds to make the inside soft and the chocolate chips soft.

We hope you all love these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are moist, chocolatey, perfectly spiced, and unbelievably yummy! ♡
