Servings 15 people


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 of a 15oz. can of pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; then in large bowl, mix together flour, 1 c. sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, 2 eggs, pumpkin, coconut, & chocolate chips.  Stir just until blended; do not over mix.
  2. In separate bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/4 c. sugar, & 1 egg on high until fluffy and smooth, about 1 minute.
  3. Fill muffin cups approximately 2/3 full with pumpkin batter.  Carefully place a spoonful of cream cheese mixture in the center of pumpkin batter.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-27 minutes until cream cheese is set and lightly golden, and knife inserted into muffin comes out clean.
  5. Recipe note: I added a drizzle of melted chocolate and some shredded coconut to the muffins once they cooled.
