WW Recipe of the Day: Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffin Cups
Have you ever tried baked oatmeal?
You can bake it in your oven or slow cooker and you can make it in a single pan (like a cake), or in a muffin pan (like muffins or cupcakes). And the flavor options are endless. We've have shared baked oatmeal recipes for peanut butter banana, carrot cake, coconut and banana bread.
This version is dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. The muffin cups bake up dense and perfectly spiced with pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon and are lightly sweetened with maple syrup. I added dried cranberries to this batch, but you could easily swap those with raisins or chopped nuts if you like.

How to Make Pumpkin Oatmeal Baked Muffin Cups
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick spray.
Step 3: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, baking powder, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and salt.
Step 4: In a separate bowl, stir together the almond milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, ground flaxseed, coconut oil and vanilla until well mixed.
Step 5: Stir the wet mixture into the dry oat mixture until thoroughly combined. Fold in the dried cranberries.
Step 6: Divide batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups.
Step 7: Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick interred near the center of the muffins comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs.
Step 8: Allow muffins to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store muffin cups in an airtight container.
Feel free to substitute, or add, your favorite chopped nuts or seeds—we think chopped walnuts or pepitas (pumpkin seeds) would make a tasty addition. Be sure to adjust your WW Points with any changes.
- Enjoy these muffin cups by themselves at room temperature or warmed in the microwave .
- Top a muffin cup with a spoonful or two of your favorite non-fat Greek yogurt and some fresh berries.
- Sometimes I even like to spread a little almond butter, or peanut butter, on my warm oatmeal muffin cup.
