Can’t get enough of everything pumpkin spice? Me neither! Call me basic, but once September rolls around I just can’t get enough of pumpkin flavoured goodies.
These chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are sort of healthy, great for lunches and after school snacks, and just plain delicious!
Will you just allow me a small rant? Just before I said that these muffins are sort-of healthy. I don’t like the word healthy, especially on the internet. Because really, what is healthy? Is it keto? Paleo? Vegetarian? Low calorie? I don’t know. All I know is that I’m not a paragon of health, so I’m not going to claim that my recipes are super healthy. Make of them what you will.
But I will claim that they are delicious! And my beyond-picky child loves them. Win-win.
These muffins are a riff on my pumpkin spice muffins with cinnamon cream cheese icing, without all the icing.
Hence, healthy? 😉
I also have a lot of other healthy-ish pumpkin recipes you might want to get your hands on, plus a how-to guide on how to make pumpkin puree, for bonus pioneer-woman-awesome-homemaker points. And if your puree comes from a can? I’m not judging. Sometimes mine does too.
