Decadent, Rich Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, 1-bowl - vegan

These 1-Bowl Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are vegan, rich, moist, and decadent; aka, the perfect chocolatey treat for breakfast or dessert!

When we visit my mom, she always tries to spoil us. She gets these huge Costco muffins that are rich and chocolatey. If you go to Costco, you know what muffins I am referring to. They are HUGE, moist, and, yes I never leave a crumb behind!

Since we will be visiting my mom this upcoming weekend, I made some vegan chocolate chip muffins inspired by Fall (aka, the 90-degree Fall weather we’re having in Pennsylvania). I added 1/2 cup of organic pumpkin purée to the batter and voila, we have ourselves these 1-bowl pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!

These 1-bowl pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are super decadent and have a subtle flavor of pumpkin pie; basically, they are mouth-watering delicious! I wouldn’t recommend eating one by itself for breakfast since these are super-rich. If you do and you’re drinking coffee, you might be bouncing off the walls. We hope you all love these muffins!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed + 2 tablespoons water)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted (not hot))
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar (turbinado)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (vegan: Lilys)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed with two tablespoons of water in a bowl; sit for 5 minutes until thick like paste.
  2. To the same bowl, mix in the sugar, pumpkin purée, melted coconut oil, and the vanilla extract using a whisk.
  3. Sift in the cacao powder and flour to remove any lumps. Next, add the baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix by using a spatula until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and divide the batter into the muffin tins, filling closely to the top.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool for a couple of minutes in the muffin tins before removing to cool on a rack.
