I admit I’m not much of a baker, but I’ve been in the habit of whipping up some healthy-ish muffins maybe once a week or so to have on hand. Often they are easy blender banana muffins, but I decided to make something a little more seasonal this week.
These skinny pumpkin muffins were so easy that Lexie could even help, which is always so fun (and messy!).
The ingredients are simple and I do feel like they’re a less-fattening but still-delicious version of the real thing.
I found quite a few pumpkin muffin recipes but went with these because they called for oatmeal. I’m a sucker for any baked good that includes oatmeal (well, except oatmeal raisin…blech ; ).
Lexie was so proud of herself as she poured in each ingredient. Her very favorite thing to do is “cwack de eggs” and I have to say she’s pretty good at it!
They turned out absolutely delicious! The muffin portion is not too sweet on its own but the mini chocolate chips really makes them yummy.

I’ve decided one of my very favorite things is transitioning our home with the seasons. Of course designing a room and choosing the large anchor pieces is fun, but I really love the smaller details that make a home – and a season – special. Changing out vignettes, adding seasonal produce for color in the…
Our sweet Evan boy (who everyone calls Evie) turned one! He’s all things boy – adventurous, ornery and sweet. I wanted to give him a classic little boy birthday party.
