  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 muffin tins or line with paper liners.
  2. Combine pumpkin, eggs, olive oil, and maple syrup together in a large bowl; mix thoroughly.
  3. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Stir into egg mixture. Add spinach and stir until evenly dispersed in the batter.
  4. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling the cups 2/3 full.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tins. Let cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute rice flour for the whole wheat flour if desired.
  • Substitute applesauce for the olive oil if desired.
