Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, March 09, 2014

To this Kiwi girl, pumpkin is a vegetable and usually roasted, boiled or made into soup!  I've often looked at pictures of Pumpkin Pie and wondered what on earth pumpkin tastes like as a sweet dish!

Recently I stumbled across this recipe, and decided to give these muffins a try.  The result?  They are delicious!  I sent my son off to camp with a container full and he came back with good reports.

So nice - definitely keen to make them again sometime soon!

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 can or 16 ounces of pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cups vegetable oil
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla and oil until smooth.
Mix dry ingredients together and mix into pumpkin mixture.  Fold in chocolate chips.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups ¾ full.
Bake at 200°C (400 °F) for 16-20 minutes.

  1. Did you actually use 2 cups of sugar? Only asking because I'm always too scared to adapt recipes...
