Total Time17 mins
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 cups light or dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1½ 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.
