I am headed up to Park City later today for the Better Blog Retreat. I am excited to see blogging friends, but I am already missing my boys. I have been traveling a lot lately and miss them every second I am gone. I wanted to leave them a special treat, so I made them Pumpkin Coconut Chocolate Chip Muffins.

My boys LOVE muffins, they are obsessed. I always keep a stash in the freezer and the other day I walked in the kitchen and Maxwell was on the floor with a freezer bag of muffins. He was eating one frozen. Silly kid!

I know the boys will love these moist pumpkin spiced muffins because they have coconut and chocolate chips, a delightful combo. I add coconut and chocolate chips inside the muffins and on top. The coconut on top gets toasted while baking and creates a nice toasted coconut topping.

The muffins are sweet enough for dessert, but I am ok if the boys eat them for breakfast while I am gone. I know Josh will spoil them. When the mommy is away the boys will play:)

I am going to put a few Pumpkin Coconut Chocolate Chip Muffins in the freezer so I can enjoy one when I get home. I just hope Maxwell doesn’t find them. He is a little muffin man:)

Get your fall on and make a batch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are delish!

  1. That coconut, pumpkin and chocolate combo is really thrilling. I’m tempted to bring these in for my daughter’s birthday treat at school for a new twist instead of the same old, same old. 

  2. 5 stars
    Decided I wanted a decadent treat for Thanksgiving morning, so I made these as written except I substituted “Cup4Cup” brand gluten-free flour for regular flour. Absolutely delicious pumpkin spice flavor with the added treat of chocolate chips and coconut. Great recipe, thank you!

    1. I haven’t tried this recipe in a loaf pan, but I am sure it would work fine. You will just need to bake for longer.
