Happy September… I have all the feels today because September is hands down my favorite month.. I’d be beyond happy if I could have 12 of them a year 🙂 Fall is everything to me and there is nothing I don’t love about it.. gimmie all the warm sweaters, hot cocoa, crisp cool morning walks with that smell that is indescribable and all the pumpkin everything!! As a bonus, it is also my birthday month and anniversary month (18 years this year!) I was eager to bake up my first pumpkin recipe of the season and these pumpkin spice apple oatmeal muffins are so good, perfect for a quick grab and go breakfast or an afternoon snack with a warm beverage. Makes 12 muffins and just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle. Go get your pumpkin baking on folks 🙂

  1. Making these this weekend for sure!! Thanks, I’ve been waiting for a low point pumpkin muffin that didn’t include box mixes!!

  2. Just made these! They are yummy. I will freeze them for grab and go breakfasts along with your banana oatmeal jam muffins! I think next time I would add more of the pumpkin pie spice:)

      So glad you enjoyed them and good idea with the extra spice we all have different levels of how we like them 🙂

  3. These are amazing, A perfect autumn/winter breakfast. My daughter loves oatmeal, but is not a morning person, she is going to take two to work with her for a mid-morning snack. We are going to try modifications too, Apple/carrot and pumpkin/maple/cranberry come to mind off the top of my head. The maple being maple extract which has 0 points. Thank you so much, your recipes make the plan even easier to follow.

      You are very welcome, so glad you enjoyed them 🙂

  4. I’m just curious how they come out as two points. No matter what’s combo of milk or almond milk, any brand of oats and brown sugar I use I get 3 points for one and 5 points for two. I always prefer to use the exact nutrition from the packages if I can so it’s the most accurate.

      Yes I agree to go with what you use, my breakdown on my WW app recipe builder is as follows Brown sugar 4, milk 3, and oats 22.. that is the only ingredients with points

      • Mine ends up working out to 3 points each and still 5 points for 2 – my brown sugar is 6, oats are 25 and almond milk is 1 – just made them and can’t wait to have them for my night snacks – starting tonight. Great recipe – easy to make. I even froze the giant can of pumpkin so I can make this 6 more times out of one can

    I used skim milk and Swerve Brown sugar and added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. This came out to 1 point each on Purple. Winner! Thanks for your wonderful recipes. So glad I found you.
