I LOVE pumpkin and decided I couldn't wait until fall. I found this recipe and it sure was a delicious breakfast.
The recipe calls for:
1 cup pumpkin purée
2 1/4 cup oatmeal or steal cut oats***
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
4 tbsp coconut butter
1/2 cups + 2 tbs organic maple syrup
1 tbsp pure vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
-- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-- Line or spray the muffin pan with baking oil.
-- Mix all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a food processor or blender.
-- Fold in the chocolate chips or use them to top each muffin.
-- Fill the muffin tin 3/4 of the way.
-- Bake in the oven for 22-24 minutes and let cool.
*** So I didn't use oatmeal because the recipe I found said "rolled oats" which I now know just means oatmeal. Instead I bought steel cut oats which I've never had before but knew they were very healthy for you. Because of this I'm sure my muffins are a different texture then the recipe I saw but I like it. Makes the muffins hearty and fills you.
One batch I only topped the muffins with some chocolate chips and the second batch I mixed them in the batter.
