Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

My kids and I love these muffins so much that we make them all year round. We make them in mini muffin tins which are perfect size for toddler hands!

Lets make them together, shall we?

In a large mixing bowl combine sugar and vegetable oil

Cream together

Grab a can of your favorite pumpkin puree, I like Libby’s

Next add in the eggs and pumpkin puree

Mix together

In a separate bowl combine and mix flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves

Add in a little bit of flour mixture and mix

Alternating with a little bit of water. Continue alternating until all of the flour mixture and water have been added

This is what your batter should look like. You can bake the batter just as it is or you can do what I like to do…add in various yummies!

These are the typical items I add in to my pumpkin muffins. My kids LOVE the chocolate chips (go figure, huh?) Walnuts, chocolate chips, raisins and cranberries. I divide the batter by spooning it into separate bowls and then mix in the separate add-in ingredients

Fill greased mini muffin tins and bake (you can use regular size if you’d like, but these are super kid friendly!)

As I was trying to snap a photo of the muffins cooling, my 3 year old came up and snagged one!

These muffins are a nutritious little bite size snack and work great in the car when you’re running late for school or going on long road trips! They also work great for breakfast appetizers on Thanksgiving morning!

I hope that you guys give these muffins a try and love them as much as we do! Have fun creating your own varieties of add-in ingredients!
