1 cupdark chocolate chipsabout 3/4 to mix in the batter and the rest for topping!
Optional topping: pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Preheat oven to 425° F and spray muffin tin with non-stick baking spray.
Using a food processor or powerful blender, pulse the oats for ~15 seconds. Then add in remaining ingredients (except pepitas and chocolate chips since those are mix ins/toppings). Blend until creamy smooth. Fold in the 3/4 cup chocolate chips, and reserve the rest to sprinkle on top.
Scoop batter into muffin tins (I like using a cookie scoop with a squeeze handle for ease), filling about 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle with pepitas and chocolate chips.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in a muffin and it comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying!

Yields 12 muffins.
I've also made these with 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1 1/2 cup oat flour and they turned out delicious!
