I can finally say – HAPPY FALL!! We all know I started fall weeks ago due to my obsession with fall produce, but it’s finally here! And the weather is here with it – is it just more, or is it cold already?! Last night I went to one of my bridesmaids (love saying that word) surprise birthday parties and it was so cold! Not that I’m complaining or anything because I finally have the perfect excuse to have soup!!! And all things pumpkin!

Speaking of all things pumpkin, can we dive right into these muffins? It’s no joke how much I love the recipe for these, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed that my pumpkin chocolate chip bread recipe transferred so well into muffins – I actually prefer it in muffin form! This time I upped the chocolate (because why not) so in every bite you have chocolate oozing into your mouth complemented by sweet pumpkin. And when I say soft, I mean these aren’t crumbly, they aren’t dry, they are decadent and so smooth in your mouth that you will be sooo tempted to go back to more.

Not that I had three or so in one day…

Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:
Serves: 12
Category: Desserts
  • 4.6 ounces brown rice flour
  • 4.4 ounces “sweet” sorghum flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon cardamom and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips, tossed in 2 tablespoons sorghum flour
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 12 muffin pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and whisk together. In a standing mixer, mix the pumpkin puree, the coconut oil and the coconut milk until combined for about 2 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients mix a cup at a time, working into the wet ingredients on a medium to low speed until it's all combined. Don't over mix - up to 2 minutes while using your spatula to scrape down is enough. The mixture won't be thin, and will be a little thick.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  • Scoop batter into each muffin pan until it's about 3/4 full. The muffins will rise a bit so this is to avoid it spilling over the edges.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes. The muffins should spring back a bit to touch and not sink in.
