Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

I love muffins on a Sunday morning with my coffee. The problem is that most muffins are packed with butter and sugar and tons of calories. This recipe is not just easy to make, it's incredibly healthy as well. Each muffin has only 88 calories and 3 grams of protein and fiber. These are an energizing breakfast or pre-workout snack. Best of all they take less than 30 minutes to make.

Full recipe after the jump.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oat bran
1 egg
2/3 cup skim milk
12oz canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp splenda brown sugar blend
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

Step by Step Instructions:

2. Mix dry ingredients - oats, flour, oat bran, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and nutmeg

3. Mix wet ingredients - egg, milk, pumpkin, honey, splenda

4. Fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients gently

5. Mix gently

6. Pour mixture into greased muffin tins

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean
