Ingredients

- 1 egg

- ½ can (15 oz.) Libby’s Pure Pumpkin (doesn’t have to be this brand)

- ½ cup milk (your choice, I used fat free milk)

- ⅓ cup brown sugar

- ¼ cup maple syrup (I used lite pancake syrup, this one.)

- 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract

- ⅜ teaspoon cinnamon

- ¼ teaspoon ground clove

- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

- 2 teaspoon baking powder

- 3 cups old fashioned whole oats (do not use instant oatmeal, I used this one.)

- pinch of salt

- chocolate chips (optional)

- 24 cup muffin pan / cupcake pan

 

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F

In a large bowl, whisk the egg, pumpkin, milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ground clove, nutmeg, and salt.

 

Step 2

Add the maple syrup and baking powder to the batter then whisk well.

 

Step 3

Add the whole oats. Whisk until the ingredients are well combined.

 

Step 4

Spray the muffin pan with a non-stick cooking spray (I used this one.)

With a spoon, insert batter into the pan. It can be leveled to the top since the batter will not rise in the oven.

 

Step 5

* If adding chocolate chips * I always add them per muffin, and just use a fork to push them into the batter per muffin.

Bake for 10 minutes.

 

Enjoy! :)
