Ingredients
  1. 3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats (gluten free if needed)
  2. 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional)
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  8. 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  9. 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 2 large eggs
  12. 1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients until well combined. Stir all wet ingredients together until mixed well. Slowly stir into the dry ingredients. Spoon approximately 1/4 cup of oat mixture into muffin tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through. Eat warm from the oven or store in an air tight container for the week.
Notes
  1. Optional toppings can include mini chocolate chips, chopped almonds or pecans,or shredded coconut. I like to top mine with a teaspoon of almond butter. Feel free to omit the protein powder if desired, but you may also want to decrease the milk to 1 and 1/2 cups.

Here is the calorie breakdown for each muffin based on my ingredients. I entered it in myfitnesspal.   

137 Calories Each, 2.6 g fat, 22.5 g carbs, 6.1 g protein.  Your numbers will vary depending on your protein powder and oats. 

I like to top my baked oatmeal muffins with a bit of nut butter.  It makes them soooo yummy!  You could also make this in a pan instead of muffins as well.  These are a great post workout breakfast or could be great before a long run too.  If you are joining my 21 day Lean for Halloween Challenge they will fit right in the meal plan too.  Enjoy.
