Ingredients

Scale
Optional Addition:
  • 40 dark chocolate chips (check for FfL-friendly ingredients; dairy-free if necessary)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease muffin tray with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mash banana until well mixed and smooth.
  3. Add maple syrup, pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add pumpkin spice, cinnamon, oats, flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until no dry pockets remain.
  4. Evenly spoon mixture into muffin tins. Recipe yields 12 small muffins OR 8 large muffins. Top each muffin with five chocolate chips (optional). Bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees (this helps muffins rise). Keeping muffins in the oven, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 13-15 minutes for smaller muffins, 16-18 minutes for larger muffins. Check muffins with a toothpick and remove from oven when baked through. Allow muffins to cool before serving. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Bread:
  1. If you want to bake this as pumpkin bread instead of muffins, pour the batter into a greased 9×5 bread pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. Check with a toothpick and remove from the oven when baked through. You can add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans to the batter for a little crunch.

Notes

Leftovers: Muffins remain freshest stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They’re delicious warmed in the oven or toaster oven.

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
