24 mini muffins


  • Cooking spray

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • cup canola oil

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ¾ cups (about 7 ounces) whole-wheat pastry flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Whisk together pumpkin, oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, milk, eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk together flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in another medium bowl. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until mixture just comes together. Stir in 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips.

  2. Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scoop, scoop batter into prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips evenly over tops of muffins. Bake in preheated oven until set and muffins begin to pull away from edges of tin, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool in tin 5 minutes, then transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
