Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

I’ve seen quite a few chocolate chip pumpkin muffins recipes lately and have marked a few that I wanted to try.  So initially, I started to make one of them, but then I accidentally messed up on one of the ingredient quantities, as a result of me being lazy and trying to do half the recipe without actually writing in the reduced amounts.

Since I was pretty far into the mixing, rather than start over, I decided to change the recipe I was using to the pumpkin muffin recipe I used last week (because the ingredient I messed up on still worked with this recipe), and then added some chocolate chips to the batter.

These pumpkin muffins came out tasty and I like the look of the chocolate chips decorating the muffin tops. I plan on trying the other pumpkin muffin recipes I bookmarked soon.

I like that these muffins are very pumpkin-y, but I am also looking for a recipe that is more muffin batter and that will rise more.

  1. Love the photos… they look amazing! Don’t you hate it when you try to halve a recipe and forget to halve one of the ingredients?

  2. LOL – so you have 3 recipes using pumpkin and choc chips in 3 ways! 😀 Love it!
    I’m waiting for you to give al the muffin recipes a go and pick the best recipe 😛

    • I’ve got tons of more pumpkin recipes I want to try, and definitely quite a few more muffin recipes. I was originally thinking of doing 30 pumpkin recipes for the month of Oct, but that seemed like a lot of pressure. I was out of town this weekend so very little baking got done, but hopefully this week and weekend I can play catch up with more recipes!

  4. 30 pumpkin recipes for month of October?!

    DO IT!! That sounds so awesome. Like a movie or something 🙂

    Have you ever considered doing a get together of all your blog followers? Like maybe meet at a tea station place or new restaurant to talk about recipes, food, etc?

    I hope to try one of your pumpkin recipes before Halloween!

    • Hi Faye! Too bad October is almost over. I definitely think I will do it next year though! Hmm, I haven’t really thought about doing a get together, but I love meeting fellow bloggers and people who follow my blog. If you ever want to meet for food, tea, etc, you can email me =)

  5. These are super cute! I was actually planning to make pumpkin muffins myself & had decided to throw on some chocolate on top. Now I am convinced it is a great idea 😉
