This morning, I dropped my coffee pot on the kitchen floor. It rolled around on its side by my feet, and for a sleepy hopeful second I thought, ‘whew, it survived!’

Then it cracked into two pieces. Happy Monday!

My stockpile of frozen coffee cubes saved the day, along with the healthy pumpkin flax chocolate chip muffins I baked last night.

Pumpkin packs some impressive health benefits. These pumpkin muffins are a frankenstein concoction I adapted from several recipes around the web.

They’re made with oat flour — I make my own by blending old fashioned rolled oats in my Magic Bullet until they’re a flour consistency — and lightly sweetened with brown sugar and semi-sweet mini chocolate chips. They’re packed with fiber, vitamins, and omega-3 (the ‘good’ fat) making them perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast with fruit and coffee.
