Expert tips:

  • Pumpkin puree – Make sure to use 100% pumpkin puree with nothing added, and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Chocolate chips – You can use milk, semi-sweet or dark, regular-sized or mini. I personally prefer minis because they distribute more evenly in the batter, resulting in more chocolate in every bite.
