Gluten-Free Orange Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

I love a good hearty muffin.  Especially a nice chewy muffin with a faint orange flavor and studded with chocolate chips!

These muffins are made from fresh ground oat flour and whole oats, pecans, and orange extract.   We brought these camping and they provided lots of fuel for our 9 mile hike!

I urge you to make these for breakfast.  They are so easy to make.  And only have the slightest hint of sweetness so you don’t have to feel guilty.  Go on, whip up a batch!  {Or two… or three…}
