Pumpkin Oat Chia Seed Muffins – no butter, no oil!

It’s no secret that I love all things pumpkin. This is a simple muffin recipe with straight forward ingredients. If you have a can of pumpkin on hand, you probably have everything else you need to make them.

Ingredients |

  • 1-15 oz. can of 100% puréed pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of instant/quick oats
  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions |

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and either grease or place nonstick liners in muffin pan.

In a large bowl whisk together pumpkin, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well. Fold in chia seeds.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 to the top and bake for 25-27 minutes. Remove and allow to cool fully before eating as they will be a bit soft on the inside while warm.
