Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins are hearty, healthy and great for breakfast or a satisfying snack. They are one of our favorite muffins to have on hand.

They freeze well so it is easy to make some extra and have them ready for another time. It is such a good feeling to have goodies to pull out of the freezer when needed.

Can These Be Frozen?

Yes! Just put them into a gallon Ziploc bag, label and seal well. Get as much air out of the bag as possible and be sure they are totally cool before freezing.

They can be popped out one or two at a time or used by the bag. 

How to Store Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

Store in airtight container or Ziploc bag. They are fine at room temperature for a day or two but after that should be in refrigerator or freezer. They will keep in refrigerator for several days and freezer up to 3 months.

Notes

--If doubling recipe, the pumpkin will equal 4 cups. A 29 ounce can is not quite that much. Just add enough applesauce to equal 4 cups. When I did it, I needed one 29 ounce can plus ½ cup of applesauce to equal 4 cups for the pumpkin.

I also still used the 1 1/3 cups of applesauce that I needed when I doubled the amount for that.

--I used unsweetened almond milk for what you see in this post. Dairy milk works just fine too. Use whatever milk you drink and have in your home.

--Raisins or Craisins are also delicious in these. If you add them and the nuts, you will get more muffins.
