Elizabeth says, “Made these tonight and they are a perfect morning treat! I only use your recipes for baking so thank you.”

Kathy says, “These muffins turned out wonderfully. The spices and level of sweetness are perfect; they are moist, tender, and flavorful. Being top 8 allergy-free, I am on the lookout for nutritious, yummy, safe recipes, and this one fits the bill… Thank you for this delicious recipe that will now be a go-to for me!”

Great Tools for the Best Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

  • Muffin batter scoop – 1 of my top baking tools. I highly recommend using this muffin batter scoop (shhh… it’s secretly an ice cream scoop!) to scoop muffin batter for easier & more even batter distribution.
  • Non-stick Parchment Muffin Liners – half the time, I use these nonstick parchment muffin liners. These babies are the gold standard in muffin liners. They are so nonstick that they naturally peel off on their own while your muffins are cooling! Perfect for folks who hate any kind of liners sticking to their muffins!
  • Unbleached Muffin Liners – the other half of the time, I love using these unbleached muffin liners! They’re compostable, stick *just the right amount* to your muffins (so the liners don’t fall off mid-cooling) and are so easy to use. Bonus: you get to feel good about them not being bleached!

So should we all go parasailing together? I wish!! For now, let’s settle/totally do something better and bake these healthy pumpkin oatmeal muffins together! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing in these baking adventures with me and your loved ones. ‘Til the next one…

Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️

    1. Hi Julia. I haven’t tried it myself here, but I’ve had other readers do that in some of my recipes with good results. Just remember that every GF AP blend is a little different, so one brand might yield better results than another.

  1. These are delicious and moist! I tried another oat flour pumpkin muffin recipe and I assumed it was too dense/dry because it was gluten free, but this recipe proved me wrong. I subbed cane sugar and canola oil since that’s what I had on hand, and added some dark chocolate chips. I’ll definitely be making these again, thank you!!

    1. I know, sometimes changing to a GF flour can lead to some dry baked goods. I’m so glad you enjoyed how moist these are! ☺️ And I’m doubly glad that the subs you made worked for out for you. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment!

  2. So glad I found this recipe, new favorite for sure! Used part almond flour to have enough oats, regular egg and pumpkin pie spice (plus a little cinnamon because I love it) and they are delicious! So healthy and flavorful!! Though I’m not sure eating 2 or more at a time really qualifies as healthy 😉
    Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

    1. I’m so happy to hear it, Teresa! Oooh, I love that you were able to use what you had on hand. 2 muffins as a serving get a total foodie seal of approval from me! I mean, where else will you get your pumpkin-only nutrients? Heehee. Thanks for stopping by to let me know! 🙂

  3. So I was looking for a healthy pumpkin recipe to use up a large opened can of pumpkin purée and stumbled upon this one. And me being a total scatterbrain 🤪 I only saw oat flour on the ingredients list not the actual oats that go into it as well. So I make my oat flour and realize I only have about 3 tablespoons of oats left over… oops!!! Well I had already put together the batter and figured why waste it. It came out soooo dang good!!! Omg!! The flavor is absolutely divine and I actually really loved the texture (I’m sure the texture is better with the proper ingredients, but good to know if anyone else runs into this problem!!). Only thing I changed (other than omitting the oats lol) is adding about a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. But they don’t even need it! Sweet enough as is and the spices are just perfect! YUM!!! AMAZING RECIPE!!! Love it!!! Thank you!!!

  4. I just made these muffins!!! They’re delicious and exactly what I was looking for. I did swap out the oil for a 1/4 cup of applesauce plus 2 tablespoons of runny almond butter – worked great!! Highly recommend this healthy recipe!!!

  5. These are so delicious! The texture is phenomenal, and they have the perfect level of sweetness. I really love them with a little sunbutter or nut butter for breakfast.

  6. These muffins are AMAZING! So delicious and satisfying! I added chopped walnuts and mini chocolate chips. I eat 2 for breakfast and stay full till dinner. Such a great recipe! Thank you for sharing.
