...based on your (my?) typical autumn kitchen experiment with pumpkin, maple, and all things delightfully comforting.
I based this recipe on a few different recipes I found while I was lost in a Pinterest vortex last week. I just bought a mini muffin pan (somehow my old one got abandoned during a move! How sad) and wanted to use it. During my recipe search, I was intrigued by the use of molasses and maple as natural sweeteners in the same recipe, so I made sure to include them!
Baking is always more difficult than cooking when it comes to experimenting and combining recipes. You can taste as you go with most cooking, but if you taste uncooked muffin batter you'll probably just come to the conclusion that it'll taste like raw egg and a stalk of wheat. Probably not what you're going for, so instead, you cross your fingers and hope it turns out edible.
Thankfully, I had the forethought to make notes as I went (I don't always—many recipes have been lost for this reason...some for better, some for worse, I'm sure), because these turned out exactly as I'd hoped they would. I paired them with this harvest spice tea and was in heaven. 

They're also great to take along to work or school for a midday snack, or if you're the type of person who forgets to eat breakfast (ahem, my husband! Ha). 

                                 1 c. wheat flour
                                 1/4 c. oats
                                 1/2 tsp. baking soda
                                 1/2 tsp. baking powder
                                 1/2 tsp. salt
                                 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
                                 1/2 tsp. each cloves, nutmeg
                                 1/4 tsp. each, ginger, allspice
                                 1/3 c. brown sugar (lightly packed)
                                 2 Tbsp. molasses
                                 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
                                 1 egg                                
                                 2/3 c. pumpkin (not pie filling)
                                 2 tsp. vanilla

                                 1 banana
                                 1/3 c. walnuts, chopped

1. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, blend brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, and egg with a mixer for about a minute until well combined. Add pumpkin, banana, and vanilla, blending until all ingredients are well incorporated. 

3. Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring until just combined. Stir in walnuts. Let batter set in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 325.

4. Pour batter into muffin pan. I filled mine pretty full and it made 24 with some delightful muffin tops. You could also leave a little room and it would probably make about 30 mini muffins, sans the poofy top. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

Hello – thank you for this recipe it sounded great and so I tried it! They tasted awesome but felt undercooked. I put them in for 25 mins like u said and then maybe even an extra 10 mins becasue I kept thinking they are under, but then I figured this is what u meant when you said they will be “dense”? I love the taste and I’m fine with the texture but just wanna make sure im not eating raw eggs! Thanks again!
