For the streusel topping:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners and lightly spray the liners with nonstick cooking spray. If you don't have liners, grease the pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, spices, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugars, oil, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Use a spatula to stir until the ingredients are smooth.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and stir until just combined.
Gently fold in ¾ cup of the chocolate chips. Don’t over mix.
Divide the batter among muffin cups, filling each cup 3/4 full.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and melted butter. Stir until moistened. Top each muffin with streusel topping. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the streusel.
Bake the muffins for 24-28 minutes or until muffins are set and a toothpick stuck in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool to room temperature and enjoy!
