Units Scale


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin tin with oil or insert silicone muffin liners into 12-cup muffin pan. Set aside.
  2. Place all ingredients, but the chocolate chips, in a blender: rolled oats, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, pumpkin spice seasoning, pumpkin purée, eggs, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Blend on high speed until the oats have broken down, stopping to scrape the insides of the blender when needed. Once blended, stir in the chocolate chips or desired mix-ins.
  3. Divide the batter into the 12 muffin cups, filling 3/4 of the way. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips or toppings if desired. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes.


  • These muffins bake fast, so be careful not to overbake them! If they are not done at 15 minutes, I suggest adding 2 minutes at a time. Protein powder and other substitutions will affect baking time.
  • Mix-ins: Other mix-in ideas are chopped walnuts, pecans, or raisins.
  • Storing leftovers – store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or at room temperature on the counter for up to 5 days.
  • Reheating – Warm the muffins in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. To reheat in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the muffins on a baking sheet and reheat for 5-10 minutes.
  • Freezing – Let the muffins cool before adding them to a zip lock bag, Stasher bag, or freezer safe container. No need to defrost the muffins before eating them again. Take as many as you want out of the freezer and heat them for 15-30 seconds in the microwave.
