how to make healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

Step 1: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: greek yogurt, pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients: whole wheat flour, rolled oats, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Step 3: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing with a rubber spatula until just combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter. Fold in chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Step 4: Line 12 muffin cups with parchment paper muffin liners. Distribute filling evenly into the muffin cups. Sprinkle on additional more mini chocolate chips over the tops of the muffins.

Step 5: Bake the healthy pumpkin muffins at 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

How to keep pumpkin muffins from sticking to the liners

Because these muffins do not have oil, you might have trouble with them sticking to the muffin liners. The easy solution for this is to buy parchment paper muffin liners at your grocery store.

Parchment liners have changed my life! Absolutely nothing will stick to them.

These pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are healthy enough to eat for breakfast, but also double as a yummy treat for your sweet tooth.

The key to these fluffy moist muffins is greek yogurt. It also means that we don’t need any oil in this recipe!

These muffins are low in sugar, making them perfect for a healthier (and protein packed) breakfast or snack.

These would also be great to curb a sweet tooth for dessert!

I used mini chocolate chips for cuteness factor, but you can use normal sized as well!
