Almond and Oat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

     Fall in Michigan just screams all things pumpkin, so I figured it would be a shame if I didn't pick up some cans of pumpkin purée and see what I could whip up in the kitchen.  My mom would always make homemade pumpkin bread when I was younger and we would just devour slices of it with butter spread on top.  Instead of using white flour like most bread recipes use, I decided to use a combination of almond flour AND old fashioned oats for this recipe because I happened to have both on hand.  I also wanted to boost the nutritional value (fiber and healthy fats) and reduce the glycemic index a bit.  My family (which includes my husband and 2-year old daughter) may or may not have eaten 2-dozen of these within 3 days.  I would highly suggesting putting a little bit of grass-fed butter or nut butter on them because, well, do I need an explanation?
