The more I post pumpkin recipes the more I see this huge divide between the lovers and the haters… My mission here is to convert the pumpkin haters into pumpkin lovers because everyone needs to experience a delicious, yummy, “can’t get enough of this” pumpkin baked good!

In this little lovers Vs. haters, we have Kyle which absolutely loves anything pumpkin and then we have my sister, Manel. She absolutely hates pumpkin… With a passion even. Anytime she sees me pull out the pumpkin cans, she lets out a huge “aww man… not again!!”

It’s actually pretty funny, I am not gonna lie sometimes I make pumpkin baked goods just to mess with her. I mean I love them don’t get me wrong but her reactions are priceless!

But when it came to these pumpkin muffins, I am proud to say that she devoured them without thinking about it twice!

So now I can proudly add this recipe to the list of pumpkin baked goods that any non-pumpkin lover will actually love!!! If you’re wondering which one the other one is, well it’s this one!! These small batch pumpkin donuts tasted like heaven!

Where did this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffin idea come from?

I’m glad you asked!

It is not anything crazy, but I still like telling stories so here it is 🙂
A couple of week ago We went to Smiths (the grocery store) and Kyle found pumpkin muffins on sale so he had to get them of course. When we went home I took a couple of bites off of his muffins and I fell in love.

It was moist and delicious and so so so chocolatey!! I still love the Bouchon pumpkin muffins a whole lot more, just because they’re from Bouchon! Quality galore… Just thinking about them makes me smile and drool all at the same time!! But those will be for another day!

But these Smith’s muffins were delicious, the only thing that would make them taste better is if I made them myself!

So there you have it, I took those Smith’s muffins as a little challenge to myself. I had to recreate the same moistness and deliciousness but by making them at home.

Now, we have something even better that we can all recreate at home 🙂

Can I omit the chocolate chips?

Absolutely, the chocolate chips could definitely be omitted for this recipe. This will allow you to cut down on some of the extra calories as well.

I personally love the addition of the semi sweet chocolate chips so I always use them!

Another option here is to reduce the chocolate chips to 1/2 a cup or even 1/3 cup if you don’t want too much chocolate. Let me know what you think in the comment section below if you changed the amount of chocolate used and how the recipe turned out!
