INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray; do not use muffin liners with these.
  2. Combine the pumpkin, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg in a bowl. Beat until combined.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, PB2, and oat flour.
  4. Add the dry to the wet mixing until just combined. (Over-mixing will result in dense muffins)
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Separate the mixture evenly among 9 muffin cavities and place a few extra chocolate chips on top if desired
  7. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick when inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove and allow to cool and then remove them from the muffin tin.
