Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins : Anything I make from Our Best Bites is instantly my husbands favorite dish. We rarely branch outside of their recipes! Recipe below:

Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 18 min 


Yields 24    Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3 cups flour, lightly spooned into measuring cups and leveled with a knife
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups (1 bag) chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 12 cup muffin tins with cupcake liners and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer. Mix in sugar, pumpkin, oil, and applesauce. In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Blend into pumpkin mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips and mix. Transfer to muffin tins (a 1/4 cup cookie scoop or measuring cup works great). Bake 15-20 minutes (18 is perfect for me) or until a knife comes out clean. Cool slightly in pans then transfer to wire racks.
