We love pumpkin in our house, especially me. I am not a big fan of making pumpkin puree from scratch, but i will never walk by canned pumpkin in the store without buying a couple.

Pumpkin muffins ingredients

  1. Pumpkin puree. I use canned but you totally can make it  from scratch from the fresh pumpkin
  2. Flour. All purpose flour is ok
  3. Brown and white sugar
  4. Eggs. Use large eggs
  5. Pumpkin spice mix. Again, you can separately add cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg or use a premade spice mix from the store
  6. Vegetable oil. I used olive oil but sometimes i bake with avocado oil
  7. Chocolate chips. Use semi sweet chips, they will balance the sugar in muffins

Its funny that my kids will probably prefer pumpkin muffins over blueberry muffins or carrot muffins. They also like pumpkin smoothies.

How to store pumpkin muffins

Once they are cool you can put them in to the ziplock bag and place in the fridge for up to one week. They are delicious cold too, so moist! I dont reheat them.

Freezer instructions. You can use same ziplock bag or use a plastic container.  Make sure to leave some space between muffins when freezing. This way they will not get stuck together. Freeze for up to 5 months.

Can i frost them and serve as cupcakes?

They are soft and fluffy and sure will be a perfect base for cupcakes. frost them with simple white buttercream and make a party!
