Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

Breakfast for dessert? Possibly! I advise chocolate chips and sprinkles if you are choosing a dessert solutions. And I endorse nuts, seeds, and/or fruit if you are opting for a breakfast option. A snack could go both way!  I extra sprinkles as a birthday celebration to make them a minor added festive.

There are a million pumpkin recipes circulating the internet correct now and the main thing that sets these aside is they are soooo very simple and conveniently custom made. Examine out this spherical up of other scrumptious pumpkin recipes from my fellow dietitian bloggers- they array from simple, to savory, to sweet.

Diabetes Welcoming Muffins

To keep the pumpkin oatmeal muffins extra diabetes friendly I recommend opting for nuts/seeds and skipping the fruit or chocolate. They can be warmed up as an effortless breakfast or snack instantly from the freezer. Serve with a smear of product cheese, yogurt, or a tricky boiled egg on the side to raise protein.

The good thing is these muffins are already bursting with great nutrition- combining the pumpkin and rolled oats generates a fiber loaded muffin. Cinnamon from the pumpkin pie spice is also a great addition for blood sugar control. Diabetic issues doesn’t have to necessarily mean dessert or baked merchandise have to go- it just suggests creating much healthier possibilities.
