Low Fat Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins


One can not have enough pumpkin in the home at this time of year, but can I tell you a secret? I don’t like Pumpkin Pie, but I love everything baked with pumpkin, so between my Easy Pumpkin Bar Recipe, Easy Pumpkin Cake (SO YUMMY!), Pumpkin Gingerbread, Pumpkin Pie in a Jar, Pumpkin Pancakes and a little random homemade Pumpkin puree thrown in, I AM IN HEAVEN!!

In fact, this is the first year I declared pumpkin is not just for the fall and I stocked up year round.

Now I have a new delicious recipe to add to my repertoire – Low Fat Crumble Top Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins. These muffins hit just the spot when I don’t want something overly sweet and want to feel a tad healthy at the same time. (Well, for that leave off the crumble top, but it’s just too good to pass up.)

Yes, I made a batch with the toppings and without, both were delicious, one was a treat.

So it’s the weekend and I bet you have most of the ingredients right in your pantry. With using a baking mix, they just whip up so quickly. I actually used my own homemade baking mix instead, but I follow the recipe in the same way.

And did you notice that the fat content is virtually nil, nothing, nada?

Yes, that means that I could eat three instead of just one lone muffin and it was so worth it!

Are you making any muffin recipes these week?

Why not peek at my list and make one this weekend. You will not be sorry.


  1. Hi, what is in all purpose baking mix? I feel silly for asking, but I’ve never seen it before. I can’t wait to make this recipe- it looks delicious!

    Yes what’s in your baking mix? I like to make it from scratch.

    I’ll make sure and post my recipe for homemade Bisquick (baking mix)

    sorry – another name – Bisquick. I will go add that. I will be sharing my mix for homemade Bisquick but that’s what I meant.


  2. Could you use pumpkin puree instead of canned pumpkin pie mix? Would you have to add in more spices? I’m not sure what is in the easy pumpkin pie mix?


    Jen Reply:

    Ok, I have the ingredients in front of me and yes, I think you could. It is basically the puree, but with all the spices as well as a little sugar. These aren’t super sweet muffins anyhow, which is how I liked them because the crumble topping adds the extra sweetness.
