Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup 100% pumpkin, canned
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips about 3/4 to mix in the batter and the rest for topping!
  • Optional topping: pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

Instructions

  • 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!
