Shopping List

The following ingredients will be needed to make these muffins. You will need flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla, butter, eggs, milk, salt, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and a can of pumpkin.

How Long Does It Take To Make

You should plan 10 minutes of preparation time to gather your ingredients and make your batter. Then an additional 20 minutes of cooking time.

Canned Pumpkin vs Pumpkin Pie Filling

I used 100% canned pumpkin for this recipe, not pumpkin pie filling. Canned pumpkin is pumpkin that has been cooked and pureed. While pumpkin pie filling is flavored with added spices and other ingredients.

Storing Instructions

Store in an airtight container for 2-4 days.

Place paper towels in the bottom of an airtight container. Add your muffins to the container on top of the paper towels. Place another piece of paper towel on top. Cover and then store the muffins at room temperature.

If you refrigerate the muffins the texture and flavor could change. If the paper towels become damp you can replace them. you can also freeze the muffins.

Can You Freeze Muffins

Yes, you can freeze muffins. To freeze the muffins you will want to make sure they are completely cooled down before freezing. After they are cooled down you can place them on a baking sheet and freeze them for 30-60 minutes. After that time remove them from the freezer, wrap them tightly, and place them in freezer-safe containers or freezer bags. Store in the freezer for up to two months.
