These pumpkin oat muffins are a delicious treat just in time for Halloween, though your family may be asking for them year round! The chocolate chip version will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, while the pumpkin seed version will give you a quick and easy start to your day.
Muffins are an easy addition to school lunches, snacks, or breakfast but can quickly add up in calories. I say make them occasionally but enjoy them completely.
Pumpkin is a great source of the powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene, as well as Vitamin C, potassium, and fibre. Found in orange veggies (carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash), beta-carotene is converted to Vitamin A in our bodies and aids in eye health.
