No flour pumpkin oats muffin-freezer friendly recipe
No flour pumpkin oats muffin

Simple mornings some times start with English breakfasts. Cornbread, pancakes, waffles, cornflakes, Spanish omelette, bread toast, English muffins, sandwich, banana bread and muffins are some of the examples. No flour pumpkin oats muffin is the recipe I am planning to make today.

Nowadays readymade muffin mixes are available in vegetarian, gluten-free, and with added bran versions too. I like to make waffles, pancakes and muffins with my homemade mix. This is an eggless jiffy version. These pumpkin muffins include banana as well.

Here, I used the Cavendish banana. If you don’t like the cinnamon flavour you can avoid it.

No flour pumpkin oats muffins ingredients


Highly nutrient-dense pumpkin is the key ingredient. I am using the regular yellow pumpkin for this muffin recipe.

Oats flour

 A whole-grain food, oats is another ingredient. I am using rolled oats for more nutrient content. You can use a spice grinder or normal blender to powder the oats.


A healthy binder, banana is used in this recipe. Any type of banana will work. The small yellow varieties can work. I am using the cavendish banana as they are sweet.


Cinnamon powder, cardamom powder and pumpkin spice are the spices I am using in this recipe. You can alter your preferred ones.

Baking powder & soda

These are the agents I am using to get a fluffy and soft muffins.


I am using raw sugar for this recipe. You can use a spice grinder or blender to powder the sugar for easy mixing. Brown sugar also works well.


I am not using any butter or egg in this dish. The only liquid I am using is milk. You can use full fat/reduced-fat milk.

Vanilla extract/essence

Vanilla extract is one more ingredient I am using in these muffins. Vanilla extract is the natural extract from vanilla. Vanilla essence is a synthetic flavouring. You can use either one of them.
