Pumpkin puree, flour, oats and fall spices come together and make these soft and chewy Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins. They make perfect breakfast for busy mornings and on-the-go snack during day.
Baking has been a passion for me since the temperature went down and we started to see brown and yellow leaves on the ground. I’m the happiest person when the house is filled with the lovely scents of this season. Close your eyes now and imagine that your pumpkin oatmeal muffins are baking in the oven. Please try it, thinking about the combination of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. I’m sure even the idea of this will make you feel the smell spreading in the house. Wouldn’t it be so lovely?
Personally, I love muffins when they are still warm. Oh and to be honest, I have a weakness for having warm muffins with butter. On the other hand, they still taste so good when cooled and make a great quick breakfast for the next 3-4 days. You can even double the recipe and freeze half of them for later. Things get even easier in the early morning! Just grab a muffin, thaw it and enjoy with your tea or coffee. Optionally, you can toast it before eating.

Have you seen our Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread recipe I’ve shared a couple of years ago? These are like its muffin version with an addition of oats, as soft and moist yet with a chewy texture. Plus, these are more filling.
I use equal amounts of flour and oats in these pumpkin oatmeal muffins and they get wonderfully fluffy and chewy. The spices and pumpkin puree give them a magical touch. I LOVE their heart-warming taste with a subtle pumpkin flavor and their bright yellow color! What’s more, chocolate chips inside these make them more surprising and flavorful.
Having these in the afternoon on a chilly day alongside hot tea or milk is equally pleasing, especially with your lovely kid when he is back from school.
