So, I first want to apologize for just now posting a new Cooking with Collin. These past few months have been so busy for me and… well, the chaos does not seem to be ending anytime soon. With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas shortly after that, the craziness will continue. …BUT hey, it’s good craziness! 😀 I’ll also be dishing about some huge personal news with all of you in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Anyway, today I am going to share an oh so yummy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins recipe! I LOVE this recipe, as you can change it up a little depending on what you have on hand. You can also make it a little healthier by adding in Whole Wheat Flour, swapping apple sauce for oil, using egg beaters in place of eggs… etc.

My kiddos love these muffins! They are moist and will make your house smell so yummy! Don’t you just love that part about baking?! You can also make them in bulk and freeze them for those busy morning or have them ready when guests arrive for the holidays!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe


4 eggs (you can substitute 2 of the eggs with egg beater to lower the fat)
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or more depending on how chocolaty you like it)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease two 12-cup large muffin pans OR grease four 24-ct small muffin pans (that’s what I did). Beat the eggs in a large bowl, and mix in the sugar, pumpkin, sour cream and oil.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Blend into the egg and pumpkin mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer to the muffin pans. Bake in the preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pans, and cool on a wire rack.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
