Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe makes 10-12 muffins!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 12 muffins


  • 1/2 cups old fashioned oats plus more for topping
  • 1 1/2 cup flour of your choice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP pumpkin spice mix see notes above if you don't have this
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin sub pureed sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 2 TBSP melted butter sub vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP honey sub agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg or flax egg, for flax egg, see notes above


  • Preheat the oven to 325 F (160 C)
  • Prepare a muffin tin with muffin liners or grease it with cooking spray.
  • Add all the dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking soda, salt, spice mix) to a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the canned pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, melted butter, honey, vanilla, and egg. Whisk until combined and smooth.
  • Push the dry ingredients to the edges of the bowl to create a space for the wet ingredients in the middle of the bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula until just combined. The mixture will seem on the more wet/moist side and that's ok!
  • Using 1/4 cup measuring cup, add the batter to the muffin tin. Sprinkle oats on top (if desired). Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the muffins are browned and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
