  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 can 16 ounces pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups canola oil (yes you will need 1/12 cups) Read below for a substitute.
  • 3 cups flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips ( you could use mini chips)
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
    Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
  • Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.


We do this……you can swap the oil for applesauce, in the same amount. Or, you can use half oil and half applesauce.   It makes them so moist!
