Dry Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips mini
  • 1 cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare 2 muffin tins with cups, grease, or silicone.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients until well mixed.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl with dry ingredients and stir to combine. Do not over-mix or the muffins will not rise properly when baking.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and pecans.
  • Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, about two-thirds full.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the muffins are golden, and the tops bounce back when pressed with your finger.


Serve warm or store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. These also freeze and re-heat very well.
