how to make healthy pumpkin and oats bite sized muffins at home

I think we can all agree that mini muffins are just pretty dang cute. They’re literally the perfect bite-size that won’t have you feeling overly full or guilty for eating and enjoying one.

Mini Pumpkin Oat Muffins

The recipe starts like most recipes where you need to preheat your oven. Combine the dry ingredients into a large bowl with the wet ingredients and get ready to start to fill the muffin tins!

Make certain that you don’t overfill! I actually like to use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to use as a scooper and put into the muffin tin so I don’t have any spilling over.

Since this recipe makes 24 mini muffins, there’s more than enough to feed my boys for the day! They’ll grab a handful as they’re walking by the table and really love the taste and texture as well. These fall muffins are always a good idea when it comes to fueling bodies and feeding bellies!
