Flourless Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Muffin Bites are the perfect way to get acquainted with Fall and you’ll be sure to FALL in love with them!
Confession: The reason why these are flourless is due to the fact my kitchen itself was flourless! What kind of a food blogger doesn’t have All-purpose flour in her kitchen? Yeah, weird…I know. Using the food processor and making “oat flour” worked out perfectly for this recipe though! I mean, check out that moistness in the picture below!
There muffins are a lightened up version of a typical muffin due to the Greek yogurt and using oats in place of All-purpose flour. I used pepitas and dark chocolate for my toppings for an extra nutritional boost! These bad boys even have turmeric in them! Who says muffins can’t be healthy?! 🙂 These muffins have been such a hit this fall I am SO happy! I already can’t wait to make them again!
These muffins give you protein punch from Greek yogurt, filling fiber from pumpkin, and thanks to turmeric and fall spices, these are healthy and delicious!
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs, large
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 2 tsp. baking power
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice
- 1/8 tsp. turmeric
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Recommended toppings: pepitas dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray cupcake tin* (see notes) with Pam. Set aside.
Using a food processor, blend the oats for ~15 seconds. Then add in remaining ingredients (except pepitas). Blend until creamy smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips, and reserve some to sprinkle on top.
Pour into cupcake tins - filling about half way. Sprinkle with pepitas and chocolate chips.
Bake for 18 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in a muffin and it comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

I used cupcake tin instead of a muffin tin because I wanted 'cupcake size' muffins, but you can make 6 large muffins or 12 cupcake size bites, OR ~25 mini muffins using a mini muffin tin.
