These little snackies have no flour and no sugar in them, but no one in my family seemed to miss those ingredients. I hesitate to call them muffins because they had more of a sunken-down "pile" look and dense texture to them after cooling. But looks aren't everything and I'll make these again anyway. I love that I can pour the batter straight from my Vitamix into the pan.
original recipe found here
2 1/2 c oats (regular or quick is fine)
1 c plain nonfat greek yogurt
1/2 c honey
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t pumpkin pie spice
1 c canned pumpkin
1/2 c chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray tin with non-stick cooking spray. My most favorite is called Baker's Joy (it has flour added in). You could also use a silicone muffin pan. (I don't recommend using paper liners for these.
Place all of the liquid ingredients in the blender (including pumpkin), and then blend adding oats in 1/2 c at a time until smooth. You may need to stop the blender a few times to stir. Stir in chopped walnuts after blending is complete.
Divide batter among 12 muffin cups and bake for 20 min. or until toothpick comes out clean.
