Pumpkin Muffins with Oat Flour
I love oat flour. I also love how if you don’t have actual oat flour at home you can easily make it with some oats and a blender! This recipe uses oatmeal that is added to a blender to turn it into flour.
If you already have some oat flour just use the equivalent amount. You’ll love how easy these no flour pumpkin muffins are!
Please be aware that for this delicious recipe to be gluten-free the oats need to be labeled as certified gluten free on the package. If you are making these for a loved one with a gluten allergy the oats need to be certified gluten.
If you do not require your food to be gluten free, you can use oats that are not certified gluten free.

How to Make Oat Flour Pumpkin Muffins
Begin by preheating the oven to 350º F.
To make oat flour, add the old-fashioned oats to your blender and blend until you get a fine powder.
In a large bowl, add the maple syrup and coconut oil and beat together with a whisk for a few minutes.
Next, add the eggs and beat for a few minutes.
Add in the almond milk, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract, and beat.
Then add the baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves. Keep beating until you mix all the ingredients together without lumps.
Then, add the oat flour to the mixture and whisk until you get a batter without lumps.
Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil and add the batter.
Place your muffin tin in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick or a knife inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
Place the muffin tin on a cooling rack to cool before serving.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

How to store oat flour pumpkin muffins
You can store oat flour pumpkin muffins at room temperature, in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Can I freeze oat flour pumpkin muffins?
Yes, you can freeze oat flour pumpkin muffins. Freeze the muffins in an airtight container for up to 3 months. This is a perfect way to batch cook them and freeze them, so you can always grab one when you’re craving something comforting.
Can I make egg-free oat flour pumpkin muffins?
Yes, you can make egg-free oat flour pumpkin muffins. Use your favorite egg replacer and use the equivalent of 2 eggs. I have not tried an egg-free version of this recipe but I know it will turn out great! Here’s my list of egg substitutes.
Can I use another flour instead of oat flour?
No, you cannot use another flour instead of oat flour when making this recipe. The recipe is designed for oat flour only.
Can I use any oats to make oat flour?
Yes, you can use any kind of oats to make oat flour. You can use old-fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, or steel-cut oats to make oat flour. Different kinds of oats create different amounts of oat flour. Steel-cut oats will create more oat flour.
For this recipe, I suggest you use old-fashioned oats so you end up with the same amount of oat flour.
