Pumpkin Chip Muffins
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
In 19880's or 1990's a recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins won a prize with Taste of Home. The year this recipe was published is the year we starting making this at Thanksgiving. We have kept the tradition of having this every Thanksgiving and every get-together. It is our favorite desert. Family and friends request the recipe often and/or for us to make. Thank you for this awesome recipe.
My daughter made these all on her own, and we taste tested them. We gave them 5 stars! A very moist muffin with great flavor, and we loved the hint of cinnamon. She will make these again!
Delicious. Made them today. Very light and great pumpkin flavor. I got 33 from recipe. They raised beautifully. Will definitely make again.
These are the best muffins. I have been making them for years, since the recipe was featured as a contest winner. Friends from 1997 still talk about how good these muffins are and still ask me to make them as their Christmas presents.
Gave this recipe a try for 4H, we were disappointed with the texture and they didn't rise like we wanted. They flavor is great but they can be a little dry.

My family really enjoys these. I do think some sort of topping would add to the texture. I may try cutting back on the sugar inside and sprinkle some course sugar on top next time.
Well, I didn't have canola oil on hand so I melted two sticks of butter instead, next time I will definitely use oil/perhaps coconut oil and applesauce. (Although I don't want it to taste like coconut) I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla and and extra teaspoon of cinnamon. However the pumpkin flavor was just not that strong. I think it has too much flour in it and more pumpkin would work. I didn't want it to be too nutmegy so I didn't add it but think pumpkin spice might greatly improve the flavor. The wet mix tasted better than the actual finished product. I think also fresh pumpkin might improve the flavor, as it seemed the canned one I bought was just meh. Also the chocolate and cinnamon I used seemed meh. I made two dozen but should have made them in the mini cups. I think it is a good base recipe but was not blown away. Although I can see a lot of people liking them. Next time I will chop up some chocolate bars, add more spice, make them smaller, and use a different combination of oil/less flour. And a different brand of canned pumpkin.
These are so delicious! Also, my daughter has celiac d. now so I have to bake GLUTEN FREE for her. This is the best recipe for gluten free muffins I have found. I just use gluten free King Arthurs Flour instead. She feels like it tastes like regular muffins!
