Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Welcome to Day Eleven of Really Reasonable Food Week! Today is my day to share my recipe and my packaging project!

I have a recipe to share. This is a recipe that my oldest son brought home from preschool about 16 years ago and we make it every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas! You will notice that the photo is not of my actual muffins. This year I baked bread, rather than muffins, and my family ate it before I could take photos!

 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 2/3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup plain pumpkin
1/2 cup butter, melted 6 oz. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly mix flour, sugar, pie spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add eggs, pumpkin, and butter and mix well until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 20-25 minutes or until done to the touch.

Makes 24.

Once you make your amazing muffins, you will need a container to put them in. I made this little folded box, which is large enough for one LARGE muffin!

To see how to make this box, visit my blog Scraps of Life for a tutorial!

Here is a close-up of the fabbie ribbons!

I used ribbon and twine to attach the sentiment to the bottom of the box. I used green shimmer satin, white corsage ribbon, and Christmas baker's twine.

I hope this inspires you to make some muffins...and, perhaps, to give a few away!

Make sure to link up your project for a chance to win some prizes!!

  1. Beautiful and love the idea of baking mini's in the little cups :)

  2. Oooh! Pumpkin and chocolate is one of my favorite combinations. My husband brought vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies he made into work recently and of course, they disappeared! :) We used to make that same recipe for a restaurant I worked at and they would sell out before we could get them out of the oven! We kept it a secret that they were vegan, unless people asked because the owner was afraid it would scare people off of buying them, so it was fun to reveal it to them when they asked what made them so delicious (it's that no animals were harmed in the making of this cookie!) :)
    I will definitely have to try this recipe, and the box is adorable. I'm in love with that corsage ribbon that came with this month's pack! It has that fabulous sheen to it.

  3. This is also one of my favorite combos also-just love pumpkin.
    Your folded box is wonderful-how fun and love all the ribbon and trim you used.

  4. Love your gift box - your recipe sounds so yummy! TFS
