Once the leaves on the trees start to turn I hanker for the flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon, I not one for pumpkin flavored everything seriously pumpkin flavoring has not business being in my AM coffee. Today I decided upon Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffin and just to tell you how my day started… I added a 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree to my morning pancake batter!

A look behind the scene… when I’m baking it’s normally an all-day event. I will bake several items in a single day so I only have a huge clean-up on a single day.

My morning will start out the same as every other day as I stumbled toward the coffee maker all bleary eyed in search of that first smell of fresh coffee brewing at this point my eyes open a little wider as I wait right next to the coffee pot for the taste of my first cuppa of the day. With coffee or hot tea in hand, I shuffle into my office and turn on my computer or sit out on the deck weather permitting. Once I reach the bottom f my first cuppa for your own safety do not speak to me until I’ve reached the very bottom of  my first cuppa and for all that is holy no over-the-top cheerfulness until I’ve finished my second cuppa I’m just saying… at this point I’m hit with the “I must bake today” urge. And it’s not a whip up a quick batch of cookies type of thing, it’s more like cookies, muffins, cake, along with anything else I can think of. It’s feast or famine for baked goods in our home.

And that’s exactly how this day began and ended with a bounty of baked goods upon or counter. It’s a good thing Mister has a sweet tooth. What I’m talking about we all have a big sweet tooth.

Ingredients:

1 can of canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

3 eggs

3 cups of rolled or steel cut oatmeal (I used old fashion)

1 cup flour

2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder

1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt

Optional:

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Or maybe a combination of cranberries and nuts let your style shine through!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare 2 muffin pans by coating each cup with a generous amount of butter or by placing muffin/cupcake liners in muffin pan. Then set to the side.

Add all of your ingredients EXCEPT the nuts and chocolate chips & 1 cup of oats into a food processor and pulse until the batter is nearly smooth.

Stir in the last cup of oats, nuts, and chocolate chips by hand.

Pour the pumpkin oatmeal muffin mix into the prepared muffin pan until each cup is about 3/4 full. I personally sprinkled a tiny amount of oats across the top of each muffin just before I placed the pan in the oven; you use any topping you’d like.

Bake the muffins for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the center muffin comes out clean when tested. Cool and then store in an airtight storage container for a few days; will last longer if stored in the refrigerator.

Do you see the snazzy red silicone muffin/cupcake pan in the photo above? I used the Keliwa 12 Cup Silicone Muffin and Cupcake Baking Pan along with one of my dark colored pans for this recipe and both pans cooked equally well.

The silicone baking pan* is non-stick, dishwasher safe, microwave safe and can be stored easily.

The Keliwa silicone pan is made with 100% high-quality food grade silicone and is FDA approved.

Simply place the silicone muffin pan* on a baking sheet before filling and leave on the baking sheet while baking (as the pan is very flexible).

The silicone has excellent heat regulation properties. I prepared my silicone muffin pan with a generous layer of butter before adding my muffin mix; they slipped right from the pan with ease once they had cooled completely.

I cannot stress enough that if you are working with children in the kitchen please stress the importance of using a baking sheet under the pan at all times AND the fact the silicon pan DOES, in fact, become VERY hot and retains heat long after you’ve removed the pan from the oven.

As most of you know I have arthritis and a bad knee for which I use the aid of a cane or arm crutch when walking. As stated before I have a tendency to spend an entire day in the kitchen once the cooking fever has hit, and this can cause me to hurt not only while I’m cooking but to hurt deeply for days after.

The Anti-Fatigue Kitchen Mat* perfectly cushioned my legs and back as I spent hours in the kitchen baking.

The comfort mat contains the perfect amount of “squishiness” so it’s not too soft so that your feet sink through the mat and your still basically standing on the tiled floor or too hard, it’s just right.

The all-purpose mat can be used in the kitchen, laundry, garage, workshop, salon, in front of a stand-up work desk, and more; the uses are limited by your imagination.

The heavy duty waterproof mat measures 20 x 32 x 3/4 inches thick. Easy to wipe clean, I steamed ours clean as I steam mopped  the tile floor.

The mat is Phthalate free as well as non-toxic. Beveled and rounded edges to reduce the chance of tripping. Non-skid textured surface with backing to help eliminate slipping. The stay flat design means the edges will never curl and the mat shipped flat so it’s never folded! All backed with a 10-year warranty by AirMat.

After spending a day using the AirMat in our kitchen I’ve decided we need to order 2 more so I can move about the “U” shaped cooking area and still be supported by the comfort of the anti-fatigue mat.*

The comfort mats are a real leg/back saver and will work well with most styles of home interior.
