Harvest Power Muffins



4-5 T pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

2 t unsweetened applesauce

1 egg (or 1 chia or flax egg)

1/4 c non-packed brown sugar

1/2 c ground flaxseed

1/2 c oats

1/4 c ground oats (like flour)

1/2 t baking soda

1 1/2 – 2 t cinnamon

2 T chia seeds

1/2 c dried fruit, dark chocolate chips and/or walnuts**

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 6-cup muffin tin.

Mix pumpkin, applesauce, egg and brown sugar in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine oats, oat flour, flaxseed, baking soda, chia seeds and cinnamon.  Slowly add dry ingredients to wet.  Gently fold in nuts, dried fruit and/or dark chocolate chips.

It will be a slightly dry batter; however, you could add a tablespoon or two of water to thoroughly combine.

Divide into muffin cups and bake 15-20 minutes.

These don’t rise, so feel free to be generous with each muffin.

**I prefer dried cranberries and Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate chips, along with chopped walnuts.**

As always, make these your very own Harvest Power Muffins.
