I find it hard to believe, but I have never shared a made from scratch recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! I have shared a couple of recipes that start with a cake mix. Also, I have shared a few other recipes with other mix ins, but not a straight forward recipe with chocolate chips included.

Now this muffin recipe has a secret ingredient that helps to make them amazingly moist. It’s dry vanilla pudding mix! Pumpkin muffins are usually tender and moist to begin with simple because of the pumpkin in the muffin. However, the pudding mix just makes these muffins even better.

However, milk chocolate or even cinnamon chips will work too.
