Can you believe that this is the last week of October?? How did that happen? I feel like I owe you at least one more pumpkin recipe before the month is over!
Any big plans for Halloween? I am definitely not a huge Halloween person. I should clarify…I love how much fun kids have getting all decked out and I enjoy handing out candy to my adorable neighbors. However, you will not find me in a costume or putting witches and skeletons all over my house. Don’t start thinking I am the Scrooge of Halloween…it’s just not my thing to get all dressed up and think about spooky stuff I guess.
As I said, I feel like at least one more pumpkin recipe is necessary before the month is over! These Peanut Butter Pumpkin Oat Muffins with Dark Chocolate are a perfect treat or snack. I still come across people that are hesitant about the combo of peanut butter and pumpkin, but don’t be. It’s delicious! These muffins have no flour, almost 6 grams of protein, fiber from the pumpkin, and are only 115 calories per muffin!
It literally takes 10 minutes or less to throw these together.
The peanut butter flavor comes from PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter which, along with oats, is the base of the dry mix for this recipe. PB2 is packed with the flavor and protein of peanuts without as much fat.
And aren’t they just cute? Enjoy for breakfast or a snack with your favorite cup of coffee.
As if there isn’t enough peanut butter flavor packed into these muffins, spread on a little bit of creamy natural peanut butter. OMG! So good.
Perfect way to warm up your kitchen on a chilly October day.
