Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

These quick muffins are a hit with everyone at our house!! The 5 year old eats them…the baby eats them…the daddy eats them…and you KNOW I am not about to miss out on the opportunity to eat my three favourite things combined (pumpkin, dark chocolate and oats!)

We make muffins almost weekly around here.  They’re just so handy!! Need a snack? BAM! Need a lunch box item? BAM! Breakfast on the go? BAM! The ONLY challenge with these little guys is not eating every single one when they come out of the oven.

I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we do!
