Delicious and nutritious hearty pumpkin oat muffins that you can whip up in a blender in no time! Perfect for breakfast, a snack, or dessert!
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
Add all of the muffin ingredients (except for the chocolate chips if you are using them) to a blender. Start on low and blend until thoroughly incorporated. The oats can be a bit chunky or turn up the blender speed to thoroughly chop them up. If you are adding the chocolate chips, stir them in by hand once it's blended up. (Or you can just sprinkle the chips on top of the muffins once they are in the liners, like I did.
Make the crumble. Add all of the dry ingredients in a small baking bowl. Melt the butter or coconut oil in a small saucepan. Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and using a fork mix them up until the ingredients are combined – it should look a bit crumbly.
Scoop the muffin batter into the muffin liners until they are about 3/4 full. Top with the crumble.
Bake for 15-18 minutes. At 15 minutes mine were perfect – thoroughly baked but incredibly moist.
