You’d never guess that these tender pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are actually good for you! Sweet and seasonal, they are a delicious treat that you can feel good about eating.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
I love a good muffin. They make such a perfect and portable snack– filling enough to curb your hunger without ruining your appetite! These muffins are a great, healthy way to enjoy pumpkin season, and it’s the pumpkin that keeps them soft and lovely without oil or butter.
It took me a long time to appreciate the pumpkin chocolate chip combination. I love and adore both of those things separately, but together they just didn’t do it for me. A really excellent pumpkin chocolate chip bread finally convinced me of the potential, but of course, it wasn’t a super healthy recipe, and I thought I could probably try giving it a good-for-you makeover.
Lightly sweet and soft, flavored with a hint of cinnamon and studded with chocolate, these muffins are a lovely snack for fall– and they’re perfect with a pumpkin spice latte! 🙂
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- ½ cup baking stevia, or granulated sweetener of choice
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup almond milk
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350. Prepare muffin pan with liners, or grease with cooking spray.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sweetener, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the pumpkin and milk and stir until just combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Divide the batter evenly into the pan and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
This recipe is vegan with the appropriate chocolate chips.
