  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease the cups.
  2. Whisk Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice.
  3. Incorporate Wet Ingredients:
    • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add in the melted butter, eggs, pumpkin puree, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Fold in Chocolate Chips:
    • Gently fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
  5. Fill Muffin Cups:
    • Using a scoop or spoon, divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Enjoy:
    • Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Pro Tips:

  • For an extra touch, sprinkle a few additional chocolate chips on top of each muffin before baking.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days or freeze for future indulgence.
