Pumpkin spice apple oatmeal muffins

September 1, 2018

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 🙂

    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:)

    Would it be okay to use almond milk instead of regular milk?

    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.
