// OATMEAL PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS
This recipe is quick and easy, which is just the way I like all my recipes. This recipe will make 12 muffins and it takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
1 cup pumpkin puree
½ a cup of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
4 tablespoons of nut butter (you could use peanut, almond, cashew, whichever is your favorite)
¼ cup of milk (you could substitute soy or almond or whatever kind of milk you like here)
2 ¼ cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ a cup of chocolate chips.
First thing you want to do is get that oven preheating to 350 degrees.
Line or grease a muffin tin. You should get around 12 muffins from this recipe.
We want to start with the wet ingredients first. The pumpkin, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla, nut butter, and milk. Put these at the bottom of your blender or food processor. I have the Ninja Professional 1000 watt blender and find it works really well.
After you put the wet ingredients in, put the dry ingredients on top, except for the chocolate chips. Layering the wet ingredients on the bottom of the blender will help the blades work better to mix those wet ingredients into the dry ones.
So, on top of the wet ingredients goes the oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. After you have blended everything for around 30 or 40 seconds, the mixture should look smooth.
Gently stir in the ½ cup of chocolate chips.
Pour this batter into the muffin tin, filling each about ¾ of the way ful.
Bake in the 350 degree oven, until they are light brown in color.
You will want to let these cool down 15 to 30 minutes before giving them a try.
And here is how they turned out. So delicious, so festive and they made the house smell really good!
So what are your favorite fall recipes? I think these pumpkin muffins would be great to have sitting out for when guests are over during the Thanksgiving holidays, but what do you and your family like to bake up for the holidays? Comment below!
