It’s time for everything pumpkin, and these pumpkin muffins won’t disappoint. They’re loaded with dark chocolate chips, plenty of pumpkin spice flavor and nuts.

I’ve been making muffins for a long time now but I was looking for a new recipe with pumpkin. I had a can of pumpkin in my pantry that I needed to use, so I grabbed a stand by muffin recipe I use often and played around with it until I came up with this really hardy pumpkin muffin.

This recipe normally makes 20 regular size muffins. After the muffins have cooled off, I will leave them in the muffin pans and put them in the freezer overnight. I will then put the frozen muffins in a reusable gallon-size plastic bag. If you have never used reusable PBA free bags before, they are a must. They have saved me a ton of money from not using as many throwaway seal bags.

The 2 muffin pans I use came from my grandmother’s home. I love them. They are old and crusty but they still bake up so nicely.

When it comes to baking time, the original recipe calls for 22-23 minutes, but 18 minutes is perfect in my oven. To check to see if they are done baking, just touch the top of one muffin and if it’s not soft, then they are done. Don’t overcook them.
