Pumpkin Oat Muffins

As soon as I saw this recipe, I just knew I had to make these:

Pumpkin Oat Muffins


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (stir flour lightly before measuring)
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin (or other brand)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper baking cups.

Combine flour, 1/2 cup oats, nuts, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Beat pumpkin, honey, apple juice, eggs and vegetable oil in medium bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir just until blended. Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling 3/4 full. Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons oats evenly over the tops of the batter.

Bake for 23-27 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm.

I made them today, with a few adjustments. I need to buy honey, so I used 1 cup brown sugar instead of the 1/2 cup honey, and I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. Also, I don't have pumpkin pie spice, so I substituted the spices for a pumpkin pie, as listed on the can of pumpkin - 1tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ginger, and 1/4 tsp. cloves. I sprinkled the oats on top and added a sprinkling of brown sugar, too.

Next time I want to add raisins. I think raisins would add a lot to these. Also, I'm going to skip the oats on top. Mostly they look pretty but fall off when you move the muffins.
