Even though muffins are a bit of a treat, there’s no reason that they shouldn’t give you something more. After a morning of moving hay, raking leaves or walking the dog, an easy edible boost is often required! These are filled with fibre and nutrition, so eat one, enjoy it and let it be.
Makes 2 dozen
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
1 t ginger
3 c flour
2 T baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 c pumpkin (grow your own, bake, scrape and mash, or use tinned)
⅔ c canola oil
1½ c brown sugar
1½ c milk
2 c oats (I use large flake, but any will work)
6 T flour
¼ c brown sugar
¼ c butter
Preheat the oven to 400°
Prepare muffin tins by either lining with paper muffin cups or lightly spraying with cooking spray.
In a small bowl stir together the four spices. Reserve 1 t of the mixed spice for the streusel topping.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and the remainder of mixed spice.
In another large bowl, whisk the eggs, and stir in the pumpkin, oil, brown sugar and milk.
While it’s resting make the streusel topping.
Divide evenly between the muffin cups.
Bake for 22 minutes, until just baked through.
