Super moist and lightly sweetened with honey, these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are perfect fall breakfast or on the go snack! Made all in one bowl with coconut oil and white whole wheat flour.
So, apparently tomorrow is first day of fall and my timing with these pumpkin muffins could not be any perfect. Thanks to my bestie for the reminder today 🙂 These muffins guys are everything! I’m very cautious when giving a recipe “the BEST” title but honestly these are right up in there.
Super moist, fluffy, and with subtle pumpkin taste. These pumpkin muffins are made with all basic (healthier) ingredients. One bowl, a whisk, and a spoon. That’s right…no mixer is required.
They are sweetened only with honey and bananas. Banana is basically a natural sweetener and I love adding it to my baked goods. In place of white flour, I used white whole wheat flour, which I must say I’m becoming a huge fan of. It’s not as heavy as whole wheat and not as processed as white flour. So it’s a good medium. To finish these off, I added chocolate chips…because why not?! They add just the perfect chocolatey taste without overpowering the pumpkin.
