Chocolate Pumpkin Olive Oil Muffins

Yields about 16 muffins.
Prep time: About 5 minutes
Cook time: About 20 minutes


For the glaze:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cavity muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. In another bowl, beat the pumpkin, oil, vanilla, sugars and eggs together until creamy. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add the wet mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.
  3. Once mixed, stir in the chocolate chips. Fill each muffin cavity about 2/3 the way full with batter. Bake for about 18 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool on a wire cooling rack.
  4. Whisk the sugar, butter, vanilla and skim milk together. Glaze each muffin and garnish with additional chocolate chips.
