Got leftover pumpkin from all those yummy Thanksgiving recipes? Here's a good way to use it up and stay pretty healthy after that huge meal! Or maybe a quick breakfast before the turkey comes!

1 1/2 cups flour
• 1 cup oatmeal
• 3/4
brown sugar
• 1
teaspoon baking powder

• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
• 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
• 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
• 3/4 cup skim milk
• 1/3 cup applesauce
• 2 eggs
• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

Pour mixture into greased muffins cups or tins.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Serve warm!
