Pumpkin Spice Muffins

These are great for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any day that comes before or after.  

The ingredient list looks long, but these are actually very easy to make. 


1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry or oat flour

1 cup old fashioned oats

1/4 -1/2 cup raw sugar

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground allspice

1/8 tsp ground cloves


1 (15-oz) can of canned pumpkin

1/2 cup nondairy milk

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp applesauce

2 Tbsp molasses

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins, chopped walnuts, and/or chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a muffin tin with paper or silicon cups.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices until well combined and then form a well in the center.
  3. Add the canned pumpkin, milk, apple cider vinegar, applesauce, molasses, and vanilla extract to the center of the dry ingredients and stir until combined. 
  4. Gently fold in the raisins, walnuts, and/or chocolate chips, if using. If 
  5. Fill the muffin tins three-quarters full. If you’d like to add an extra dose of adorableness, sprinkle the tops of the muffins with a few oats.
  6.  Bake for 25-27 minutes or until a toothpick or fork inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Let the muffins cool for a few minutes before eating or serving.
  • Feel free to play around with the amount of sugar. I don’t like my muffins too sweet, so I tend to stick with about 1/4 cup, but if you prefer sweeter muffins, feel free to add another quarter cup.
