Healthy Pumpkin Muffins
I personally love recipes that can double for multiple meals. These Healthy Pumpkin Muffins are a great breakfast treat or could be used as an alternative healthier dessert option.
They are flourless and Healthy pumpkin muffins that are made in the blender and flavored with cinnamon and chocolate chips. What kid doesn’t love chocolate mixed with breakfast?
My kids love to bake so making these Healthy Pumpkin Muffins allows them time in the kitchen to learn recipes and even math. They love that they can eat them after they worked so hard to make them. They used to not like pumpkins in anything I bake but eventually, they are getting used to the taste. I feel like as they grow older they are open to trying and having anything I make them!
