Prep Time 8 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 38 mins
Servings 12 muffins
- 2 1/4 cups (203 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats gluten free as needed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1 large egg or 2 egg whites
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup (honey works too)
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk will work)
- ¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts optional
- ¼ cup dried craisins or any dried fruit optional
- ¼ cup mini or regular chocolate chips optional, but recommended
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir together oats, baking powder, spices and salt. Add pumpkin, egg, maple syrup, vanilla extract, milk and optional add-ins (if using). Stir well to incorporate.
- Allow the mixture to set and thicken for about 3-5 minutes before spooning into your muffin pan. Fill muffin cups almost completely full with batter. The muffins will not rise.
- Bake for 30 minutes and until the center of each oatmeal muffin is set. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. If you don’t allow these to cool before taking them out of the muffin pan, they will fall apart. I used a knife around the sides to make removal easier. After cooling, they will set well.
