Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
These little muffins make the perfect lunchbox “treat” especially when they're size of a standard mini muffin pan.
With this recipe, the kids get extra nutrition with the whole wheat flour and fiber-rich pumpkin puree.
This recipe is easily made dairy-free since it has no butter. Just replace the milk with your choice of non-dairy options.
Pumpkin and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations! Plus, you get extra fall flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg. If you're also a fan, you'll love this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cheesecake.
I also made myself a gluten-free batch by replacing the whole wheat flour with Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour and a little xanthan gum.
The kids have loved these both as an afterschool snack and in the lunchbox as a bit of chocolately dessert.
