Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cornmeal Muffins

Jessica Braider
My kids love these for breakfasts, snacks, and even in lunchboxes because of the chocolate chips and pumpkin flavor. I love them for the whole grains and dose of vegetables.

Servings 24 servings


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk (or use any variety)
  • 4 eggs
  • 15 oz. canned pumpkin or 2 cups cooked pumpkin from 1 small sugar/pie pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat two 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy.
  • Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the chocolate chips and beat just until smooth.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full with the batter, and bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean (a little under-baked is good). Let cool and serve immediately, or store tightly covered for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 6 months.
