  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Swirl
  • 1 cup whole Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Step 1: Pumpkin Batter

Preheat oven to 400° F. Measure all ingredients for muffins and place in a high powered blender. Blend ingredients together, starting on low speed and gradually increasing to high speed, until the batter is smooth.

Step 2: Greek Yogurt Swirl

In a bowl, mix together ingredients for the Greek yogurt swirl until completely combined.

Step 3: Swirl the Muffins

Line a 12-cup muffin pan with parchment liners. Fill ⅔ of the way full with pumpin muffin batter. Spoon approximately 2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt mixture on top of the batter. Using a knife, swirl the two batters together, being careful not to overmix.

Step 4: Bake 

Bake muffins for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
