Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray 18 muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners.

  • Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, nutmeg, allspice, and salt together in a bowl; form a well in the center.

  • Stir brown sugar, pumpkin, soy milk, oil, molasses, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until well mixed. Pour brown sugar mixture into the well of the flour mixture and stir until batter is just combined; fold in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Remove muffins from pan immediately and cool completely on a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

I used soymilk, but any milk will work. I also sometimes make 12 oversized muffins instead of 18 regular, and just bake them for about 20 minutes.

Lightly spoon flours into measuring cups and level with a knife to measure more accurately.

I used dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips to create the illusion of being healthy. I also baked this in a loaf pan instead of a muffin tin because I'm lazy like that. Reportedly this makes 18 servings but my family decided it was more like 5. Read More

Quite moist and delicious. I halved the recipe and got 8 BIG muffins could have probably squeezed a dozen out of the batter if I made them smaller. Used mini chocolate chips. Nice flavor! Read More

Great recipe. Added walnuts just because my family likes them and only made some minor changes (only because I wanted to use what I had on hand) - topped up the pumpkin with some unsweetened applesauce as I didn't have enough pumpkin used whipping cream - because I wanted to use it up. These get most of their sweetness from the chocolate chips. My two year old gobbled these up. Will definitely make again. Read More

I ran out of whole wheat flour so I only used a little of that and made up the difference with almond meal and a little 5-grain cereal (which gave it a nice nutty texture). I also didn't have brown sugar but I improvised with white sugar and extra molasses which worked fine. As others have mentioned the muffins are beautifully moist and delicious. I've saved the recipe and I'm sure I'll make it again! Read More

Love how these turned out! My only suggestion is I made less than what it called for mainly cause I like to make them a bit bigger. They could use a little extra sugar and if you're going to make them bigger I made 12 muffins set my oven to 375 at 16 minutes and that did the trick. Read More
