Healthy Pumpkin Oat Muffins

Slightly adapted recipe from Ambitious Kitchen


3 cups oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of ground cloves
2 apples peeled and diced
1 can pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 Tablespoon olive or coconut oil
1/3 cup chocolate chips*

Preheat oven to 350F and brush a muffin tin with oil. Place the oats in a blender or food processor and blend until it resembles flour. Place the oat flour in a medium sized mixing bowl then whisk in baking powder, baking soda, and all spices. Place the apple slices in a small pot and cover with water. Boil until the slices are soft, then drain and blend in a food processor or blender. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together apple puree, pumpkin, vanilla, maple syrup, and oil. Slowly add the oat flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, then divide into your muffin tin. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

*omit chocolate chips to make baby-friendly, or use Enjoy Life chocolate chips to make vegan/dairy free!
