You will need:

-1 cup of oatmeal

-1 cup multipurpose flour

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1 teaspoon baking soda

– spices: cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, whatever you fancy.

-1/2 cup sugar

-1/4 cup vegetable oil

-2 eggs

-3/4 cup milk

-1 cup pumpkin

I make my own pumpkin, but I guess you can use canned pumpkin just fine. If you are going all for scratch, cut your pumpkin in medium size pieces and take the guts out, put them in the microwave for 30 minutes or in the oven for one hour. Once the pumpkin is tender let it cool down and pass the flesh through a strainer with a spoon or use a blender. This will make the puree really smooth.

Mix all your dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredients to that mix. Grease a muffin pan and bake at 400 F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

If you feel like, toast the seeds and add them to the top of the muffins before baking. Another good option is to throw in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, they go wonderfully together!
