Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

Fall is FINALLY here!! I do not think that I am alone in saying that it is my favorite season. Especially now that I am back in an area that actually has real seasons. The air is getting a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change colors. I’ve even busted out a few sweaters! But, even more than cool weather, colored leaves, and sweater, what I love the most about fall is probably the food. Warm stews and soups, apple cider, and, of course, PUMPKIN! Judging by the view of my blogs Pinterest page, I am not the only person excited about baking with pumpkin again.

To be perfectly honest, I did some premature pumpkin baking this year. These muffins were actually a part of my great pre-baby freezer stocking! . I waited to post the recipe because I wanted to see how they held up to freezing and reheating after a month. I am happy to report that these froze and reheated beautifully.  There really was no sacrifice in flavor or texture after hanging out in freezer bag for a month. Anytime I wanted a delicious, easy, one-handed snack, I would just grab one of these out of the freezer and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and boom! You pretty much have a freshly baked muffin! Perfect for first time parents of a newborn, busy parents of back-to-school children, or busy people with no children!

I’m muffin crazy, how about you?

  1. What a smart mommy you are to plan ahead for this wonderful Pumpkin baking season!! I could definitely use these in my freezer, in my tummy and for Elena, too! YUM!

  2. It looks like a good recipe to try. Must try for sure.

  3. If I don’t have whole wheat flour, do you think I could use just all white all purpose flour?

  4. i can’t say that I’ve had pumpkin cclhooate chip muffins but they look divine.looking forward to seeing the “after” house projects.Lindsay

  5. Mine came out very dense. Perhaps it needs more baking soda? I’m not sure. But since these were for my toddlers, they didn’t care. Flavor was good.

    I also think adding some raisins or craisins would add a burst of moisture and flavor too.

    I will definately make them again, but I’ll experiement a bit to see if I can get them to lighten up.
