Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Cups Rolled oats Save 1 cup for the the topping
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 1 Cup Pureed pumkin
  • 1/4 Cup Almond milk
  • 1/4 Cup Butter (Unsalted) melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1/3 Cup Pecans Chopped
  • 5 Tbsp Brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp Butter (Unsalted) melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Line a 12 cup muffin pan with 12 liners.
  • Add oats to a food processor and blend until it becomes oat flour, about 3 minutes. (Reserve 1 cup for the topping.)
  • In a medium bowl add 1 1/2 cups of oat flour, sugar, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt.  Stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl add the wet ingredients:  Pumpkin puree, milk, butter, eggs and vanilla.  Mix with a mixer until combined. 
  • Then gently fold the flour mixture into the wet mixture.  This step is important because over mixing will cause the muffins not to rise.
  • Divide the pumpkin batter into the muffin liners.
  • For the topping: Combine the reserved 1 cup of oat flour with the pecans, brown sugar, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree, salt and melted butter.  Stir until crumbly.
  • Divide the topping over each muffin.
  • Bake 25-28 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
