Pumpkin Breakfast Muffins – Hearty muffins with cranberries, pecans and oats, perfect for breakfast!
I simply love making muffins. They are always a favorite here at home, but they are also one of the first things that vanish at a coffee or brunch sort of potluck.
To Make this Recipe You Will Need:
- all-purpose flour
- baking soda
- steel-cut or old-fashioned oats
- pumpkin puree
- extra virgin olive oil
- orange juice
- sweetened cranberries
- mixing bowls
- standard muffin pans
- muffin papers
How to Make Pumpkin Breakfast Muffins
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pas with papers. Set them aside for now.
In a bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger and allspice.
Stir in the oats. Set it aside.
In your mixing bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs and extra virgin olive oil.
Mix those well, and stir in the orange juice.
Stir your flour mixture into the liquid mixture until combined.
Stir in the cranberries and pecans.
Scoop the batter into the muffin pan, filling the cups about ⅔ full.
This recipe makes about 14-15 muffins. You will need a full sized muffin pan as well as part of a second pan.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the pumpkin breakfast muffins test done in the center with a toothpick.
Remove to a cooling rack and cool to room temperature.
Enjoy your muffins warm too if you like!

I love making a double batch of these muffins so that I can save them for breakfast on another day. They freeze well and can be taken from the freezer to thaw overnight on the evening before you plan to serve them.
