Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Fall has arrived!!!  I bought my first (of many) cans of organic pumpkin puree from Trader Joe’s this week and I could not wait to make our stand-by fave muffin.  I have been making this muffin for about 4 years and little man loves them.  There’s no easier way to get him to consume pumpkin, apples, and whole wheat!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (adapted from Marg’s recipe)

  • 4 eggs
  • 1.5 cup unsweetened applesauce (I make my own, but if you buy some make sure to use organic, unsweetened)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin (Trader Joe’s Organic)
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 (heaping) teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces semisweet mini chocolate chips


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients together; separately, mix dry ingredients.
  2. Blend the two mixtures together, fold in chips.
  3. Generously fill 24 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. (I have found the paper liners don’t work very well.).
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 16-20 minutes.  Mine were done at 18 minutes.
