Good For You Banana Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 min read

Super moist and lightly sweetened with honey, these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are perfect fall breakfast or on the go snack! Made all in one bowl with coconut oil and white whole wheat flour.

Super moist, fluffy, and with subtle pumpkin taste. These pumpkin muffins are made with all basic (healthier) ingredients.

One bowl, a whisk, and a spoon. That’s right…no mixer is required.

They are sweetened only with honey and bananas. Banana is basically a natural sweetener and I love having it in my baked goods.

In place of white flour, I used white whole wheat flour, which I must say I’m becoming a huge fan of. It’s not as heavy as whole wheat and not as processed as white flour.  So it’s a good medium.

To finish these off, I added chocolate chips…because why not?! They add just the perfect chocolatey taste without overpowering the pumpkin.


  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, in liquid form
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs

  2. Grease 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or if using liners, line with liners.
