Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

October 20, 2009

With the remains of the canned pumpkin from yesterday’s brunch, I decided to whip up something else fall-themed.  Pumpkin and chocolate?  Wonderful combination, and this recipe is super easy!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

  • 1/3 c butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 c sugar
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1 c pumpkin
  • 1 2/3 c flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 c milk chocolate chips
  • handful walnuts, coarsely chopped

Set oven to 350 degrees, mix all ingredients (EXCEPT chocolate chips and walnuts) together with an electric mixer, until smooth.  Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts by hand.  Spoon batter into muffin pan, filling up about 1/2 of each space (the dough rises very much).  Bake about 20-25 minutes.  Serve plain, with cream cheese icing, or with butter – enjoy.

Makes about a dozen and a half muffins.
