Equipment

  • whisk

Ingredients

  • cup Avocado oil
  • cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 medium eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour
  • cup old-fashioned oats plus more for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius). If necessary, grease all 36 cups of your mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or use silicone muffin cups.
  • In a large bowl, beat the oil and maple syrup together with a whisk. Add the eggs, and beat well. Add the pumpkin purée, milk, pumpkin spice blend, baking soda, vanilla extract and salt.
  • Next, add the flour and oats to the bowl and fold mixture with a large spoon, just until combined (a few lumps are ok). If you’d like to add any additional mix-ins, like nuts or dried fruit, fold them in now.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the 36 mini muffin cups.
    Sprinkle the tops of the mini muffins with a pinch of oats. (optional)
  • Bake muffins for 16 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
  • Place the muffin tin on a cooling rack to cool.
  • These muffins are delicate until they cool down.

Notes

These muffins taste even better after they have rested for a couple of hours! They’ll keep at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. They keep well in the freezer in a freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months. ENJOY!
