Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Baking chocolate chip pumpkin muffins has been on my mind since my little adventure in Palisade. The last day, before heading home, we stopped at Main Street Bagels in Grand Junction. Good bagels are sadly hard to find in Colorado so the slight diversion from our route, was well worth it. I had to have a bagel, of course, which caused no regrets but my friend got a mega chocolate chip pumpkin muffin that was so delicious!

Though the muffin was super good, I knew I could make something similar at home. I have various pumpkin recipes but not a pumpkin muffin recipe so I went to my mom for a recipe. She did not have a specific one either but searched around for one she would use. The recipe is simple and delicious! I added a sugar mix topping to give it a little crunch which was exactly my favorite part of the muffin from Main Street Bagels!

They were so good warm out of the oven 😀 These are nothing special but they are a great afternoon snack or breakfast treat with coffee. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
~Makes 12 muffins
~Adapted from recipe and The Pioneer Woman

1 2/3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup butter (slightly melted)
1 cup chocolate chips

1 T sugar

Notes: The topping recipe was double what I have listed but it ended up being way too much so the amount listed, should be plenty.

A few more chocolate chips could be added if you like a more chocolaty muffin 🙂

  1. I have to say, I disagree that these are nothing special. They look delectable, perfect for the season, and just what I’m craving right now. I wish I could reach into the screen and grab one! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the recipe – and also loved the video!! I wonder how long they had to practice to get it so right – it’s pretty amazing when the other “creatures” come out behind her. I just can’t get this out of my mind. Gotta watch it again!

    • ha ha I am glad you like the video! I thought it was pretty awesome and have definitely watched it multiple times. It is such a simple yet very creative video! 🙂
