total time


1/3 cup (75 grams) pumpkin puree

1/3 cup (67 grams) sugar

2 tablespoons (30 mL) canola oil

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup (68 grams) all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 cup (25 grams) cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus extra for top


Preheat the oven to 350, and line a muffin pan with 6 cups.

In a large bowl, whisk the pumpkin with the sugar, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk very well until combined.

In the same bowl, sprinkle the flour, pumpkin spice, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt on top. Using a spatula, stir until well-combined.

Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.

Divide the batter between the muffin cups evenly, and sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top of each muffin.

Bake for 18 minutes, or until the muffins are done. They're done when they spring back when pressed gently on the top and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
