These healthy pumpkin muffins clock in at just under 100 calories per serving—and you’d never guess that they were made in a blender. To make the batter, simply process all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. There are no endless piles of bowls and spoons to clean—it almost feels like magic. Once baked, these pumpkin muffins are light, fluffy, and full of pumpkin-spice flavor.

2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

How to Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin-cup liners, round pieces of parchment paper, or spray the tin with cooking spray.

Step 2
In a blender, process the oats until they have the consistency of flour, about 1 minute.

Step 3
Combine the remaining ingredients with the oat flour in the blender; blend until smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 4
Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice.

Step 5
Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool muffins in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
