Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of our family’s favorite treats–during the holiday season and year round–is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. These special muffins have the perfect flavor combination and are deliciously moist and tender.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 carton Pacific Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree
  • 3/4 c. oil
  • 3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips


In large mixing bowl, beat eggs until fluffy. Add sugar and beat again.

Add pumpkin to mixture. Mix until well combined.

Add oil and unsweetened applesauce; mix until combined.

In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix until well blended.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 400* for 16-20 minutes, or until muffins are lightly browned.

Environmentally Smart

Tetra Pak cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, and use only 1/3 the packaging of typical cans. In addition, the cartons are recycleable and result in 60% less landfill waste than cans.

User Friendly

The shape of the Tetra Pak cartons makes them easy to store in your pantry, and they are easy to open–no can opener required! The cartons are also re-closeable, so you can use what you need and save the rest for later without transferring to another container.

Healthy Choice

Tetra Pak’s unique packaging process preserves flavor and nutrients without preservatives. Now that’s smart!
