Pumpkin Oat Muffins

I got bored last Sunday and started fishing around for stuff in the kitchen to mix up. I had pumpkin, oats and a longing desire for it to be fall. I did a quick search online, found a pumpkin muffin recipe and started improvising. (The improvising stemmed from the fact that my mother threw out my baking soda two months ago when she helped me moved. I never forget.) Here is what I came up with.

Pumpkin Oat Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cup of oats 
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup of canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stick of butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar (or other sugar substitute)
  • 1 large egg
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grab a standard 12 cup muffin pan and spray with a light cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients, including the oats. Whisk together lightly.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, butter and pumpkin. Combine with the dry ingredients and mix until blended.
  4. Spoon the batter into each cup of the muffin tin and bake for 12-14 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

These muffins are very dense and are best served with butter or your favorite jam. I highly recommend an apple butter!
