Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats, old-fashioned, certified gluten-free if necessary
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar, brown sugar, OR 0-calorie sweetener like Monkfruit Sweetener or Swerve
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice *see note 1
  • 2 tsp baking powder gluten-free, if necessary
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk of your choice almond, cashew, etc.
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 2/3 cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup cranberries fresh or dried

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with parchment paper liners, OR grease an 8-inch square baking dish with coconut oil or butter.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.

  • Optional, but good:  Combine 1 tablespoon coconut sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the top of each muffin cup.
  • Bake muffin cups for 22 - 24 minutes, an 8-inch square pan for 40 - 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 - 10 minutes before removing muffins and transferring to a cooling rack. This time allows them to set up and makes it easy to remove the paper liners. 
  • Serve warm, plain or with milk, yogurt, kefir, applesauce or sliced apples.
    Freeze extra muffins cups or squares in an airtight container. Reheat in microwave for a quick breakfast.
