Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these muffins. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Plain/all-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Ground cloves
  • Salt
  • Large eggs: You’ll need 2.
  • Caster/granulated sugar
  • Buttermilk: To find out how to make your own buttermilk, see my notes in the recipe card below.
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.

How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

To make these muffins, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, baking powder, spices, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour.

Add the buttermilk, oil, vanilla extract, and pumpkin, and whisk until combined.

Add the dry ingredients in thirds and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. The mixture will be thick and somewhat lumpy.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly between a muffin pan lined with muffin cases, filling to the tops.

TIP: Top with extra chocolate chips just before baking, for looks.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
