PUMPKIN PIE SPICE BAKED OATMEAL MUFFIN CUPS
- 3 cups rolled oats or old fashioned oats
- 2 teaspoons Pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
- ½ cup plain greek yogurt
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 1 ½ cups peeled and finely chopped apple about 2 small apples (I use Gala apples)
- ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
- Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl stir together rolled oats, Pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt. Set to the side.
In another medium bowl crack and lightly beat the eggs. Whisk in the the brown sugar until blended. Whisk in the Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, milk, and coconut oil.
Stir oats mixture into the wet ingredients until combined.
Gently stir in the chopped apple and walnuts.
Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Drop oatmeal mixture, using a 1/3 measuring cup, into each of the muffin pan cups. Using a spoon press down the oat mixture into the liquid in each of the cups. This is to make sure the liquid is evenly distribute among the oats.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
