Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins are a healthy, yet tasty treat for the Fall Season. I used steel cut oatmeal for my daughter, whose diet is Gluten Free for health reasons. This makes the consistency similar to corn muffins (which I love). For those not concerned with gluten you can use rolled oats instead.

Add chocolate morsels or dried fruit and nuts into the mix, or just serve plain with a fruit spread.

The pretty silicone baking cups in the photo are reusable. I bought them Amazon. (Please note that I get a commission on this link if you click on it):
