Oat Flour Pumpkin Muffins with Cranberries and Chocolate Chips

Delicious and healthy oat flour pumpkin muffins with cranberries and chocolate chips! So good and wheat free and refined sugar free. Great way to start your morning.

I love all things pumpkin. Well, except for pumpkin pie. But everything else, bring it on!

I have a Pinterest board all things pumpkin that I occasionally like to drool over. There are even some healthy recipes on it. For the most part, though, when pumpkin recipes come along they are loaded with sugar and not exactly health food. Those are good for desserts or a special occasion breakfast, but day to day, I hate to admit it, they probably shouldn’t be a part of my diet. (So sad.)

In an effort to get pumpkin into my day (and have a make ahead meal for breakfast) I put together these yummy oat flour pumpkin muffins with cranberries and chocolate chips.

That’s right, there’s no wheat in them at all and they have unrefined sweeteners (and not too much of it). I suppose, if you really wanted to, you could leave out the chocolate chips (or cranberries if you are my daughter. She thinks she doesn’t like them. Good thing my boy will eat them for her.) and they’ll be even healthier. Do so at your own risk. The chocolate is a yummy addition.

These can be made gluten and dairy free is you use appropriate milk, chocolate chips, and oats!

Notes
- I make my own oat flour using old fashioned rolled oats and blend them in the blender until a powder.

    Hi,
    I think everyone has pumpkin and cranberries on their mind this time of year. These muffins look delicious and I love that you used fresh cranberries! I’m going to try the fresh ones in my cookies next time instead of the dried. Thanks for the recipe and the fresh cranberry idea.

      Pumpkin and cranberries are so yummy! We aren’t wheat free, but I like having some recipes without wheat and these are a yummy one. Mmmm. Yes, fresh cranberry cookies sound fabulous.
