    I’ll be the first to admit that I prefer to cook over bake but when the temps start to drop and the leaves start to fall, I find myself gravitating more and more to the kitchen where I can warm up by the oven.

    My boys love anything made with pumpkin so I knew right away these pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins would be a huge hit. In fact, we enjoy pumpkin all year round in oatmeal, smoothies, pancakes and more.

    Ideal for freezing, I love whipping up a double batch of these mini muffins and stashing half of them in the freezer to use at a later time. Pro Tip: If you individually wrap them in plastic wrap, you can pull them out one at a time as needed.

    Ingredients
     

    Instructions
     

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and have a non-stick mini muffin pan ready to use.
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour through cloves; set aside.
    • Using a stand mixer, blend together wet ingredients (pumpkin through vanilla) using the lowest setting to ensure you don’t get splattered. Move the speed up a notch to medium and slowly add in the dry ingredients, about 1/2 a cup at a time, until they’ve all been added.
    • Turn off mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with rubber spatula. Turn the mixer back on to low speed and carefully stir in the chocolate chips. Turn off as soon as they’ve all been added. Remove bowl from the stand mixer.
    • Using a small cookie scoop, carefully scoop out 48 muffins into the muffin pan. Bake until a toothpick comes out clear, about 10-13 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack at least 15 minutes before removing from pan.

    1. This looks like a great recipe. Would it be okay for me to use almond flour in this recipe?…and would I use the same amount…2 cups?
