Pumpkin and Apple Oaty Muffins

Just in time for Halloween

okay so it may have taken me a few weeks to get my hands on some pumpkin puree but I’ve finally found some! and I found a WholeFoods literally 10 minutes up the road in the process. Which is going to be dangerous to the bank account.

These muffins are healthy in ingredients and a perfect breakfast or snack idea for on the go. Bake a batch on a sunday and you’re sorted for the week ahead!

They’re completely free from dairy and eggs, plus they can be gluten free should you use gluten free oats. The cinnamon adds a lovely autumnal flavour, plus the crunch from the apple chunks is divine!
