Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

My mom makes the best pumpkin muffins! So since it is fall and everything you eat has to have pumpkin in it, I asked her for the recipe. I mix everything together according to the recipe and took them out and they were.....not right. These were definitely not my moms pumpkin muffins. So I called her, turns out she changed a few things in the recipe and didn't bother rewriting the recipe card. I tossed out the messed up muffins and tried again. My second attempt was close but still wasn't right. And again I called my mom and we found yet another part she changed and didn't write down. Finally my third try was a success! I finally had pumpkin muffins like my moms!

I asked her if I could post her recipe and she said, "Well it's not mine it's my friends." To which I replied, "you have changed so much of this recipe, this is definitely your recipe!!"

So here are my mom's Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins!

1 15oz can of Pumpkin Puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
4 Eggs
3 cups Sugar
1 cup Vegetable Oil
3 1/3 cup Flour
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Water
1 12oz package of Chocolate Chips

Preheat your oven two 350*. Next, mix together the Pumpkin, Eggs, Sugar, and Vegetable Oil. In a separate bowl mix together the Flour, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Baking Soda, and Salt.


Slowly add the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Once completely combined add the water. Mix well and then add the chocolate chips. Get a muffin tin and either spray it with cooking spray, or just us cupcake liners. I tried both and I like the cupcake liners because it doesn't make as much of a mess.

Fill each muffin cup about 2/3s full. Bake for about 15-20 minutes depending on your oven. Check them with a toothpick before you take them out to make sure they are done. 

These are super yummy, and they don't have a super crazy amount of pumpkin in them, so even my friends who don't like pumpkin flavored everything will eat them! And since my husband is gone for a few weeks in training I froze some of the muffins since there's no way I can eat them all. They freeze really well!

And of course Chance my trusty kitchen assistance was always near by in case I happened to drop a muffin. I might have baked one without chocolate chips so both the dogs could test it out. They approved! 

I hope you all try this recipe out this fall!!
