These are hearty muffins great for a grab and go snack or paired up at breakfast as a healthier option. Packed with protein with Greek yogurt, moistened with pumpkin puree and lots of fiber with oats with the addition of a favorite of mine, Lucuma powder.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and whisk together to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. (Do not overmix to prevent the muffins from getting tough.
