  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups light or dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375º F. Prepare muffin tin with liners or by spraying with nonstick baking spray. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream together pumpkin puree and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs, being sure to incorporate well. Add flour mixture about ½ cup at a time, stirring to combine. Add vanilla extract and buttermilk. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon muffin batter into prepared muffins tins, filling about ¾ full. Place in preheated oven and bake until the lightly spring back to the touch and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center, about 12 minutes for mini-muffins and 25-30 minutes for full-size muffins. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
