Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Place 1 cup of old-fashioned oats in food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds to get to flour-like consistency.
  • Transfer pulsed oats and the other cup of whole oats to a large bowl. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add pumpkin, yogurt, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir until combined. (If using walnuts and chocolate stir in at this point)
  • Transfer to a greased muffin tin and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing and set on cooking rack.

Notes

  • Pulse half of the old-fashioned oats in the food processor to make an oat flour. If you don't pulse the oats, the muffins can be a little dense.
  • Mix it up with the spices. I personally love to use pumpkin pie spice but you can use cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
  • While optional, add nuts and chocolate to give additional flavor. You could also add dried cranberries or candied ginger.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to get an even amount of batter in each muffin tin.
  • Just like with any regular muffin that you make, you’ll know they are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
