Who doesn’t want a good pumpkin treat this time of year? This recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin muffins is everything you could ask for – it’s easy, so tasty, and each regular-sized muffin is just over 100 calories, so you can totally indulge guilt-free! My entire family loves this recipe so much that I make this recipe several times per year. I’ll usually make a double batch and then hide the extra muffins in the freezer, otherwise they’d get eaten within a few hours! In fact, I’ve started stocking up on the ingredients whenever they’re on sale at our local grocery store so that we always have the ingredients on hand to whip up a batch. If you’re looking for a simple, yet delicious, recipe to try this fall, give this one a try.

All you’ll need is:
1 spice cake mix – any brand is totally fine!
15oz can pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tin with liners or spray liberally with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Blend the cake mix, pumpkin puree, and egg together until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into muffin tins until about 2/3 full. I like to use a large scoop to easily fill mine without making a mess. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. One batch makes approximately 18 muffins.

Pro tip: these muffins freeze really well! Make a double batch, cool, and store leftovers in an airtight freezer bag. These defrost well at room temperature or place a frozen muffin in the microwave for about 30 seconds. My family loves these for an easy breakfast or a quick after school snack.

Give these a try and thank us later. We would love to hear how you like them!
