Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here is yet another pumpkin recipe  I just love muffins, so it was only fitting I would make healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.  They make me feel like I am eating cake for breakfast. 🙂   Growing up in Boston, we had a Dunkin Donuts on every corner.

One of the things I loved there was the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.  Then one day I looked up the nutrition facts. They have 600 calories and 26 grams of fat.  Ouch!

Meadow and I ate one as soon as they came out of the oven.  Yum! Do you have a Dunkin Donuts nearby?  We only have a handful here in Texas.

If you are a visual person, I filmed this short video on how to make these. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.

  1. Thanks for the recipe.......I love everything pumpkin from soup to muffins or cake.....Do you think it would work if I substituted additional applesauce for the oil to make the muffins completely fat free??? Thanks for the calorie count.....
  2. I need a gluten free flour for this recipe. What would you recommend and what changes would I need to make? Almond, coconut, quinoa? I also can't have eggs but can do the flax egg.
  3. I wanted to make these and the banana choc. chip donuts tonight but I just realized I don't have anymore applesauce! Is there anything I could use as a substitution that would work equally well?
  4. Finally made these after drooling over them for months. They turned out great :) Thanks for an alternative to DD or SBux muffins which we all know are not the best for you! Love your blog and recipes :)
  5. Oh my yumminess...I only had white flour on hand and I was too lazy to make it into muffins so I made it in an 8X8 pan. DELICIOUS! Thanks so much!
    1. I freeze them in a ziplock bag. I usually pull them out the night before I am ready to eat them. That way, they will ready in the morning.
  6. I can't remember if I left a response or not, but I just have to tell you how much I love this recipe. My kids gobble them up and I don't have to feel bad about it! Even without the chocolate chips they will eat them. It's been a great way to get some vegetable in their bellies (picky eaters) so I am thankful that you provided such a great recipe for a yummy and healthy treat :)
  7. I'm not familiar with cloves, I vaguely remember them from childhood Christmases, but do you use whole spike ones? Or do they sell powder?
