Eats: Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins

10:30 AM


After managing to make a decent pumpkin pie this fall, I decided that I needed to make a ton of them. I got a little overconfident (aka, did not follow the recipe) the week of Thanksgiving and ended up doubling up the ingredients for the filling, but I did not have enough of the actual pumpkin and it came out like soup. I knew nobody would eat that, so Kyle was sweet enough to bring me another pie pumpkin after work so that I could add it to the mix. I still ended up with about a full cup of pie filling after baking two pies, so I got the great idea to make muffins with it the following week. 

These were awesomesauce. AWESOMESAUCE. I managed to get rid of some of the oatmeal that Kyle refuses to eat, and still end up with a slightly healthy breakfast, go me!

What you will need: 
1 cup multigrain hot cereal
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder (not gonna lie, I did not have this, therefore, it did not go in the batch I made)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin pie filling 
1/2 cup milk (I used Silk)
2 eggs (I used flaxseed & Silk)
1/4 cup vegetable oil 
1 tsp. vanilla
