A Holiday Treat {Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins}

A couple weeks ago I made a batch of these muffins for Trey and myself. If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I like pumpkin anything and, as I mentioned last week, Trey wants his breakfast on the go. It’s safe to say that these are more like dessert than breakfast but who doesn’t like dessert FOR breakfast!?

I honestly didn’t think these muffins would be that good. After all, this recipe is super easy…definitely not muffins from scratch! But, to my surprise, they were that good! They were so good I decided to make another batch to take with us to Trey’s grandparents’ house over Thanksgiving. And, I knew I had sweet potato casserole, pecan pie and other delicious family favorites to compete with. (Okay, I really can’t compete with that Louisiana home cooking but these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins didn’t last long!)

If you have a holiday potluck for work or for fun and don’t have much time, these make for a good treat (you know, if you can’t make that potluck salad)! Or if you just want some holiday goodies to keep around, try these out. Trey ate these for breakfast almost every day for about a week…I preferred them for dessert later in the day.


–1 box yellow cake mix

–1 egg

–1 can pumpkin (15-16 ounces)

–1 tsp cinnamon

–1 cup chocolate chips

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients and pour into lined or greased muffin pan. Bake for about 22 minutes or until a fork or toothpick comes out clean. I made 18 muffins with one batch but you could make 24 smaller muffins.

So easy and so delicious!
