Ingredients in this recipe

  • Quick oats: The key to the chewy texture in this recipe, and the hearty whole grain flavor!
  • Maple syrup: A natural sweetener that will keep these muffins moist.
  • Pumpkin puree: Make sure to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling! The only ingredient in the can should be pumpkin.
  • Almond milk: Almond milk makes this recipe dairy-free, but offers the same consistency as dairy milk, plus a little natural sweetness.
  • Pumpkin pie spices: To give these muffins that classic pumpkin spice flavor! If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own: combine 2 tbsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground allspice and 1/2 tsp ground cloves together.

How to make these healthy pumpkin spice muffins

In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together thoroughly. 

Slowly mix wet and dry ingredients together, making sure not to overmix – you want the batter to be fluffy!

Spoon the batter in the muffin moulds 3/4th of the way full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, and let cool before consuming!

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • I use white spelt flour in my muffins, but you can feel free to swap that out for regular flour, or a gluten-free flour blend. If you are using a gluten-free flour blend, make sure it has xanthan gum in it. Otherwise, add 1/2 tsp to the recipe.
  • To make a flax egg, mix 2 tbsp flaxseed meal with 6 tbsp water. Let sit for 5 minutes until it thickens
  • Bake with quick oats in this recipe, rather than steel cut or rolled! If you’re making this recipe gluten-free, make sure your oats are gluten-free as well.
