Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 6 Tbsp cold water
  • 3 cups rolled oats (or: 2 ¼ cups oat flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¾ cup pureed pumpkin
  • ¾ cup unsweetened soy milk (or other milk of choice)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (plus extra for topping)

Equipment

Blender
Mixing Bowls
Muffin Pan

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line or grease muffin pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine ground flaxseed and cold water. Thoroughly mix and set aside to thicken.
  • Using a high powered blender, blend the oats on high until they resemble a fine flour. Alternatively, use 2 ¼ cups premade oat flour.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin, oil, milk, and flax/water mixture.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until most lumps are gone. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop muffin batter into muffin pan, distributing evenly. Each muffin compartment should be ~¾ of the way full.
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes. Muffins should be springy when pressed on tops.
  • Store muffins over a piece of paper towel in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-4 days. They can also be kept in the freezer for up to two months.

Notes

  • Store leftover ground flaxseed in the freezer to keep it from going bad.
  • Feel free to mix it up with your add-ins! 
  • If you choose to use a liquid sweetener such as agave or maple syrup, consider decreasing to ¾ of a cup since liquid sweeteners tend to taste sweeter.
