Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins
The other day Nate got a BIG container of leftover oatmeal from our kitchen at GLM. After warming it up for breakfast I decided fresh oats was definitely my thing, but what to do with the leftovers?
Well a bit of internet research and fridge scouring for other ingredients and I whipped up these delicious Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins.
They were amazingly moist and filling—perfect for a snack or a couple for your morning breakfast on-the-go!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup pumpkin
2 T melted butter
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup leftover oatmeal
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. In separate bowl whisk pumpkin, butter, eggs, maple syrup, and oatmeal. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until combined. (Be sure not to over mix!) Fill 12 muffin cups 1/2-2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes.
Yum! I need to mix up some more this week! They are so amazing to have when that 3:30 snack break hits! Or after dinner snack. Next time I may add some walnuts or protein powder….it’s fun to be creative in the kitchen!

Yum! These look delicious! I remembered that you posted a recipe with protein powder in it a while back so when I made waffles this weekend I added some to the batter.
Yum! Yep, I love throwing protein powder in everything–just added it to my oatmeal this morning! You could easily add it to these muffins,just decrease the ammount of flour by the amount of protein powder added and maybe adjust the sweetener based on the type of powder you have. 😀
until now PROTEIN PANCAKES WITH OATS…
the child would love these.
can I make ahead and freeze?
I haven’t tried it, but I wouldn’t see why not. I ate mine in like 3 days. Lol! I would definitely store in the fridge though.
I have a recipe for oatmeal dinner rolls that uses cooked oatmeal. They are very yummy. I can send you the recipe if you still have oatmeal to use up.
Sure! I think I know which one you’re talking about–yum!
Oh my gosh…those look so good, and that is the cutest little bin!
GREAT IDEA!!! Sometimes I sure have some leftover oatmeal sitting around! Actually have some PUMPKIN oatmeal right now!!! 🙂
Looks great! How many muffins does this make? I want to double (lots of leftover oatmeal!)
Hi! It should make a dozen! Enjoy!
