Oatmeal Pepita Muffins
Mornings can be pretty busy at our house, especially during the holidays. Because I’m usually cooking, shopping or running errands, I like to keep things simple and whip up a few easy recipes that I can serve as ready-to-eat breakfasts throughout the week.
My oatmeal pepita muffins are the perfect portable snack and great for breakfast on-the-go. They’re also a great healthy option, packed with delicious oats and nutritious milk, which is rich in calcium, potassium and vitamin D. I like to enjoy my muffins with a glass of milk on the side for extra protein and a more balanced breakfast.
Oatmeal pepita muffins are wholesome enough to eat everyday and can even be substituted as a healthy dessert. You’ll never have to feel guilty about eating them.
Oatmeal Pepita Muffins with Siempre Leche
These oatmeal pepita muffins are rich and flavorful with the help of creamy milk, sweet brown sugar and a splash of vanilla. Tender oats and toasted pepitas add texture and crunch to these delicious muffins. They’re perfect when eaten warm fresh out of the oven and just as delicious when cooled and stored in an airtight container.
Here in Texas it’s hot, and I usually save most of the heavy cooking for evenings, when the sun is low. I like to bake up a big batch over the weekend and store them for breakfast and snacking throughout the week.
So take a break from the holiday hustle and whip up a Texas-sized batch of these gorgeous oatmeal pepita muffins for your family and holiday guests to enjoy.
