This time of year, I always crave something sweet. I don’t know why, I just do! These mini pumpkin oatmeal muffins are so easy to make and are a perfect little on-the-go treat, too.

I won’t lie, I was super excited to try my new bakeware from HomeGoods. Every now and then, I pick up a few new mixing bowls and measuring cups and I couldn’t pass these up. Something about having all of my ingredients in glass jars (all in one place) makes baking so much easier and organized.

I created a little baking station in one of our cabinets in the kitchen island and it’s so nice to have everything right there, ready to go.

Aren’t the pink measuring cups adorable? (Yes, they are from Homegoods!)

This recipe makes about 3 dozen mini muffins. I ended up doubling the recipe to make 6 dozen. With four generations living under one roof, 3 dozen would only last half of a day!

These are perfect for special treats during the day, Sunday mornings with coffee or any special occasion. My son looks forward to these on Christmas morning.
