Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

When I started this Unicef fundraising project, my husband, the biking architect, said oh this is great because I am craving Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins.  He originally made them for us during one of his Sunday Morning, we-all-eat-together feasts.

I had been given a little book called Muffins by a neighbor but we could not get the muffins we had tried to solidify using Gluten Free flour combinations, because our family needs to eat Gluten Free.  My guy did not know this and saw the words Pumpkin and Chocolate Chips in the title and went for it.  They are amazingly good and children love them.

I copied out the recipe onto a card and gave Muffin book the “from”spot.  I gave the book away – could not find that book when I put it in Google search – so thank you to whoever created it.



Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins
½ cup chopped almonds (I grind these sometimes into flour or omit)
1 2/3 cup raw sugar granules (honey works well if you add more flour)
1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg – your favorites)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder (Gluten free works well)
¼ teaspoon salt (I omit)
2 large eggs, beaten (I leave out the yolks) or use flax seed goo (If you ask I will share)
1 cup plain pumpkin puree (I noticed that canned pumpkin puree is available on Amazon*)
½ cup melted butter
1 cup Gluten Free/dairy free Chocolate Chips (one can use the fake one’s too)
2 cups of Gluten Free flour – or whole wheat, barley, oat, pastry, bread flour, or a combination (rye flour is not so yummy in these).

Set the oven at 350’F and grease the muffin pans.  I use cupcake papers when these were going to schools or children’s parties for treats.

Mix dry ingredients.  Mix wet ingredients.  Mix together.
Bake 20-25 minutes – let them cool a few minutes before removing from pans.


My daughter just called for this recipe – I told her I was posting it and putting it in the e-book.

I am looking forward to more recipes, post and pictures arriving. Do you have a recipe for a food you love to make and eat?

    This is a great recipe and do pass it on as it sets up nicely and does not fall to crumbs. I am having great fun with the ebook learning and work out – and getting great recipes to share…I too think it is a good idea and I think this particular cause is a bit overlooked – because it is children helping children?

    Mama Zen,
    They are very tasty. My husband is submitting these and another love food to the book…

    I can never get enough crab or lobster in my life – a definite YES!
    Thank you for your kind words…I think I need a tripod for my camera as my hand tremors are so awful I have to take about 40 pictures to get one that is not blurry. Your nice words means a great deal to me.

    Love’s Leading Companion,
    Welcome, welcome, As we harvested the pie pumpkins, my husband was talking about these muffins and his other Autumn favorite food.
    I am thinking I am 12 recipes short this morning for a good fundraiser – but I think this is going to be a good effort because it is bringing out so much enthusiasm in folks and a making a very fun learning project for me.
    Thank you for coming by and sharing. – Got a recipe?

    I will come to visit your new post, just as soon as I exercise, I am just hooked to the computer working on this project and need to get up and move around :)

    Sorry about your tremors. I get those too, but mostly in my brain. :)
