1 cup pumpkin puree (1/2 butternut squash pumpkin, diced, steamed & pureed)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp pumpkin spice mix
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds & rolled oats
Preheat your oven to 170C. Spray & line a 12-cup muffin tin, set aside.
In a large bowl, add the pumpkin, applesauce, sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil. Whisk together until combined.
Add the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and spices to the wet mix. Mix together until combined, careful not to over mix.
Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin tin & sprinkle some of the oats/seed mix on the top of each muffin before baking.
Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown & bounce back to the touch.
Cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before removing them onto a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
