I love anything and everything pumpkin! I love the pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin soup, pumpkin chai, etc. The list could go on and on. This recipe for pumpkin chocolate-chip muffins is a personal favorite. I prefer muffins as I can freeze them and only pull out what I need saving the rest for a later date. However, this recipe can also be poured into a loaf pan and made into pumpkin chocolate-chip bread! Either way, you can’t go wrong!
This recipe is free of: dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, eggs, wheat and gluten.
- 1 Cup Canola Oil
- 1 15-oz Can Pumpkin Pie Filling
- 3 TBS Flaxseed Meal + 8 TBS Warm Water
- 3 Cups Sugar
- 3½ Cups Gluten Free Flour Mix (I like Better Batter)
- 2 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 2 tsp. Salt
- ⅔ Cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
- *Water as needed*
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Mix the flaxseed meal and warm water together and let sit to form a gel (about 5-10 minutes)
- In a large bowl, combine the sugar and oil together and mix well.
- Add the pumpkin and flaxseed meal mixture and mix until combined.
- In another bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture in small batches. Mix until all flour has been incorporated.
- If the mixture is too thick, add a couple TBS of water and mix well.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. (more or less can be added based on preference)
- Spoon the batter into lined or greased muffin tins.
- Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Be sure to read all of your labels. I have found many spices and other products (i.e. garlic powder) that includes additional ingredients like soy.
Known Allergy Information (containing the major 8): None
If you are going gluten free, substitute a gluten free flour mix. Here is my favorite gluten-free substitute.
**Disclaimer: Please note that every child’s sensitivity to their given allergen(s) varies. Some of the items that I use do contain “natural flavoring” and “spices” which is hard to determine if it is 100% allergy free. You should always check with the manufacturer to confirm that your child can have their product(s). The products that I list are items that I’ve been using for awhile and have proven to be safe for my boys (their allergies are dairy, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish and sesame).**
