Autumn has Arrived! Pumpkin Muffins, Acorns,


In honor of Autumn and seasonal changes...

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins (mini sized), from a recipe shared by my friend Celia on the Five In A Row Forums YEARS ago, and check out the size of those Acorns! WOW!

Celia's Recipe Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins (With a couple of changes)

This is a "Tripled Recipe" which used a whole can of pumpkin
I'll list the regular recipe and in parentheses I will place the tripled recipe. The tripled recipe uses one whole can of pumpkin mix.

In a large bowl combine:

5 cups Flour
2 1/4 cup Sugar 
1 bag Chocolate Chips 
3 tsp. Cinnamon 
3/4 tsp. Salt 
3 tsp. Baking Soda

In a medium bowl combine and whisk until smooth:

6 large eggs 
1 can Pumpkin Mix ( I used plain canned pumpkin~ next time I'll add Pumpkin Pie Spice to the dry ingredients) 
1 1/2 cup MELTED butter
3/4 cup Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla 

Fold liquid ingredients into flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just blended.
*Note~ I mixed the liquid ingredients in my Kitchen Aid and then added the dry ingredients 1 cup at a time until incorporated

Place liners in muffin pan cups and spray to make easier to remove, then fill each cup 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees.


If baking without liners, let them cool on a rack for 5 minutes before attempting to remove them from the pan, so that they come out in one piece. :) 

A tripled batch makes about 8 dozen mini sized muffins (I baked 2 pans-worth today, and put the rest of the batter in the fridge to bake later).

What is one of your favorite things to do to "welcome Fall" ? 


  1. This recipe would be great to use for an autumn bake sale or a large group breakfast meeting.

  2. This recipe sounds very good. I think it would be good for my daughter to make for her teachers for Halloween treats.

  3. I love to welcome fall by drinking hot cider. Yum! Those muffins look delicious. I like Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses. If you can find them I recommend trying them!! Yum!!!! I love the fall smell in the air too. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.


Thanks so much for letting me know you were here. I appreciate "thoughtful" comments. :)
