Pumpkin Almond Butter Chocolate Muffins

Not just another muffin recipe (ok well maybe it is) but I love to have muffins on hand for quick snacks and to add them to my yogurt bowls for breakfast. Combined with pumpkin, chocolate, and almond butter these may be my favorite muffins yet. Oat flour is what I used but you could also sub for gluten-free flour. The best part, it’s an all in 1 bowl recipe.

In keeping with the pumpkin theme, I added in pumpkin chocolate chips from Lily’s (totally optional – could use regular chocolate chips) These are freezer friendly too. However, I didn’t get a chance to freeze any as they were gone within a few days. Enjoy these cake-like muffins and maybe make 2 batches as they will not last long!
