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 know fall is the season of orange, and there is nothing like a bright pumpkin in the autumn. But let’s be honest, I’m a neutral girl at heart. My very favorite autumn decor is always white pumpkins and naturals to add texture (see a round up of some of my favorite fall decor here)….
