  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats, use gluten-free oats if needed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp oil, coconut or olive
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips, divided (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a mini muffin tin with liners.
  • In a blender, pulse the oats for 30 seconds until you have a course oat flour. The flour doesn’t need to be even because we will blend until smooth in the next step.
  • Add in the cocoa powder, pumpkin puree, oil, egg, maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla extract into the blender and blend for 30-60 seconds or until completely smooth.
  • Add in the baking powder, baking soda and salt into the blender and blend on low for 20 seconds.
  • Add in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and stir with a spatula.
  • Spoon the muffin batter into the muffin liners 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle with reserved chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly brown and set.
  • Let cool completely and then serve.
