Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins Simply Filling +1sp

Update I made these with fresh cranberries and put it in the recipe builder and they came out to 2sp each or Simply Filling.

I saw a few recipes for pumpkin muffins and I really wanted to make one that was simply filling and not such a heavy wet type of muffin. I experimented a couple of times an this is what I came up with.

Yes I use ground oats for the flour and yes I count it as SF. Just what works for me and you can do whatever works for you :)

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins 6 muffins Simply Filling +1 sp or 4 smart points according to my calculator

I always keep a container of already ground oatmeal in my cupboard so it's quick to use.

1/2c canned pure pumpkin
1 egg
1 egg white
1/3c Greek yogurt
1 tsp of pumpkin spice or more if you like
sweetener to taste I used 1/4c baking splenda but use whatever works for you
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup of already ground oats
2 Tbsp pure mini semi sweet chocolate chips divided into 6 is 1sp/muffin or 1/2c frozen cranberries cut in half for simply filling

I used a hand blender to blend the pumpkin, egg, egg white, pumpkin spice, sweetener and yogurt together.
In a small bowl mix the oat flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Do not overmix
Fold in the mini chocolate chips into the batter.

I use parchment paper muffin liners which work perfectly every time. I lined a foil muffin cup tray with the liners and divided the batter between the 6 cups.
I baked them in my toaster oven on 350 for 18-20 minutes. Don't overcook them. I used a toothpick to check to see if they were done.
