I had leftover pumpkin puree from making soup so I threw together some muffins for a potluck at work. I was asked for the recipe by so many people, I went back and made them a second time so I could write down the recipe. I added the cinnamon chips both times and they make these muffins special.

Soft and sweet, these moist pumpkin muffins have just the right amount of spices. Cinnamon is front and center while the other spices linger in the background. The cinnamon sugar topping is just enough to put these over the top. They are what you would expect to find at a coffee shop. A delicious muffin alongside morning coffee or to enjoy as an afternoon treat. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Test Kitchen Tips
Cinnamon chips can be hard to find. We've had success locating the Hershey's brand at Walmart (10 oz bag).

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tins (any size) by spraying with baking spray (Pam) and lining with paper or foil muffin papers.
  2. Mix together the first group of ingredients and then add the second group of ingredients.
  3. Add third group of dry ingredients together and slowly add to the batter.
  4. Once all the dry ingredients have been well mixed into the batter add one package of cinnamon chips. *Note: I found Hershey's cinnamon chips at both QFC (Kroger) and Albertson's here in the Northwest.
  5. After the chips have been stirred in well, scoop the batter into your muffin tins. This will make 12 jumbo muffins (plus a few minis) or 24 regular-sized muffins. Before baking sprinkle each muffin with about a teaspoon of cinnamon sugar (less for minis).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes for minis and 20-25 for regular or jumbo muffins.
