Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil (or melted and slightly cooled coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (or raisins or dried cranberries)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 24 cup mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
  • Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and stir together to combine thoroughly, but gently.
  • Add a heaping 1 tablespoon to each prepared muffin cup and bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden brown around the edges and a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out cleanly. Cool in the pan for 2 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Serve warm, at room temp, or chilled.

Notes

  • Gluten-free: Use gluten-free oats and a gluten-free flour blend.
  • Dairy-free: Use diary-free chocolate chips.
  • Egg-free: Grind the oats in a food processor or blender before you add them to the batter to create more of a flour-like consistency or use purchased oat flour. And omit the eggs and add 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds and 1/4 cup water or milk.
  • You can of course use dried cranberries or raisins in place of the chocolate if you prefer.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5. Serve cold or warm briefly in the microwave. You can also store in the freezer for up 3 months. Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature.
  • Cut into smaller pieces for your child if needed.
