How to make healthy chocolate chip pumpkin pie muffins

These healthy chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are super easy to make. You seriously do not need to be a professional baker or cook by any means. It’s so easy that you could most likely do it with your eyes closed. I promise.

Here, I’ll walk you through the steps.

First, preheat your oven. Then, line and a cupcake tin with reusable cupcake cups or liners.

Next, in a large bowl, whisk the egg with a fork.

When ready, add your pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil to the large bowl with the whisked egg. In order to melt your coconut oil, just place a little into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on 20-second intervals until melted. Then measure the desired amount and pour it into the bowl.

Next, you’ll make your homemade oat flour with rolled oat! In a blender, add your rolled oats and completely blend until a flour-like consistency. This trick not only comes in super handy for baking but saves you a ton of money!

Now, add the almond flour, homemade oat flour, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder to the large bowl and mix by hand until fully combined.

Now, fold in however many chocolate chips you want in by hand with a spatula and evenly fill the cupcake liners.

You can even add a few extra chocolate chips on top!

And voila! Easy, healthy chocolate chip pumpkin muffins made with almond flour and other wholesome ingredients.

They are perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a post-dinner dessert!

    This is an amazing fall recipe! I have made them twice now and I found that they are a little better if you sprinkle a little salt on top of the muffins before you put them in the oven 🙂

      Emma, that is such a great idea! Next time I make them, I will definitely be adding some salt.
