OMG – it’s pumpkin season again !!!!

I cannot even contain my excitement . I do not cook or bake anything pumpkin until I flip that calendar to September , it’s just my thing .
I am 100 % over the fact that we had a crappy summer this year so let’s bring on Fall! My most favorite time of the year . Hoodies , jeans , boots and pumpkin everything .
Even my dear old Starbucks rolled out the #PSL early this year . I cannot drink them there as they refuse to get Sugar free pumpkin syrup . Good thing my local cafe stocks it!
So back to the baking , very loosely termed baking is what I’m up too . The girls are back in school tomorrow , squeeeeeeee ( excited MOM ) and I wanted to make sure they had some yummy snacks for lunches . I decided on these to make –

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

I totally cheated because I used a pre mixed muffin mix – yeah yeah whatever – I Do Not Bake !

These were my ingredients

Stupid easy right!
Simply mix the entire package of muffin mix – oatmeal flavor
1/2 can of pumpkin purée ( not pie filling)
1 cup of water
Pumpkin pie and apple pie spice

Drop into muffin tins , either greased or with paper . Top with large flaked oats.
Bake for 18-20 minutes @400 degrees

Let cool , then store in an air tight container !

If you think those are awesome , stay tuned because I made an apple crisp too – from scratch – seriously !

Enjoy and Happy Pumpkin Season !
