healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins


Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (you can use semi-sweet if you prefer)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it with a little coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, coconut sugar (or brown sugar), baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients: pumpkin puree, applesauce, melted coconut oil or butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  8. Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy your healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! They make a delicious and nutritious treat. Keep in mind that you can adjust the sweetness and add-ins to suit your taste preferences.
