Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

These store well in the fridge so you can make them a day or two ahead if you prefer—or bake and serve warm from the oven. These taste like a cross between baked oatmeal and a traditional pumpkin muffin (they don't have any flour, so they're a little denser than a traditional muffin, but still super moist!).

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease a standard size muffin tin.
  • Place all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor except the chocolate chips.
  • Blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  • Divide among the prepared muffin tin. You want each cup to be about 3/4 full. Top with chocolate chips if using.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes or until firm to the touch and lightly golden brown around the edges. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Notes

  • These muffins can store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days. Or in the freezer in a zip top freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature.
  • Serve cold or slightly warmed. Dice into smaller pieces for younger kids.
  • Use canned or homemade pumpkin puree.
  • Dairy-free: Use plain unsweetened nondairy milk.
  • Gluten-free: Use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
  • Egg-free: Use a store-bought egg replacer like the kind from Bob's Red Mill or Just Eggs. (Flax or chia eggs can be used, but the texture may be more like baked oatmeal than a muffin.)
  • Use honey instead of maple syrup if desired. (Do not use honey for kids under age one.)
  • For mini muffins, bake for 12-14 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the centers comes out cleanly.
  • If you love the flavor of pumpkin pie, use 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice.
  • To make these by hand without a blender or food processor, use store-bought oat flour and mix the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  • Add a few chocolate chips to the tops of each muffin if desired.
