One of my favorite things about fall is fall baking. And pumpkin foods are a favorite in my house during the fall.
I recently made these Chocolate Chip Honey Pumpkin Muffins to send to work with my husband, and everyone loved them. In fact, several people loved them so much they wanted the recipe.
Pumpkin and honey go so well together. Add chocolate, and you have an even better combination. Now, if you want to make them even healthier, you can leave out the chocolate chips, but really who would want to leave out the chocolate? Chocolate makes everything better right?!
I made a gluten-free version of these for the gluten-free eaters in my family, and I shared the recipe with my readers. If you or anyone in our house avoids gluten, the gluten free chocolate chip honey pumpkin muffins are a must try.

Yummy – made a double batch today – had to double as I put too much pumpkin in when measuring (guess I should read better). Anyway – glad I doubled – delicious. Made 28 muffins and 24 mini-muffins. Yummy – can’t wait for my kids to try them at snack today – this recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for a wonderful muffin recipe.
I have lots of pumpkin puree to use and want something different than pumpkin pie, these sound delicious! Im not much of an oil user in my recipes, so I’ll add Apple sauce instead, hoping it turns out lol and tastes not so much like apples, I could just omit the oil and add more pumpkin puree too…hmm well I’ll let you know how it turns out!! 🙂
Great! only change I made was to swap oil for melted butter as I didn’t have oil at the time.
