Total Time:50 minutes
Yield:12 muffins 1x
1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup milk (whole milk or your favorite dairy-free option)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350 F and line 12 muffin tins with parchment paper or silicone baking cups.
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt to a large bowl and whisk to combine.
Add the pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter to the bowl and beat with a mixer for 1-2 minutes, until fully combined.
Mix the milk into the batter, then stir in the pecans and chocolate chips until evenly incorporated.
Spoon the batter into the muffin tins until they are 3/4 of the way full, then bake for 25-30 minutes, until the muffins are fully set and don’t jiggle in the center, and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Let cool for about 20 minutes, then enjoy!
