I admit it, these Pumpkin Butter Oatmeal French Toast Muffins have a little bit of an identity crisis. Are they baked oatmeal muffins or french toast muffins?  Heck, you could bake this in a casserole dish and it could be a breakfast casserole.  I started out making french toast but my husband needs a little additional magnesium in his diet so I added oatmeal and wheat bran.  So here are incredibly versatile and utterly yummy Pumpkin Butter Oatmeal French Toast Muffins.

So many times I have two different ideas in my brain for a recipe.  Most of the time when I mull it over, I come up with one idea I like better.  Other times, I have to test a recipe a few times until I find one that works.  I also have a long list of recipes that have not worked, epic failures.  My hubby is so good about being a guinea pig for me and trying my sometime wacky ideas.  He’ll give me the “it’s good, hun”.  Which is code for “yuck”.
These were so good and they freeze great! Pumpkin Oatmeal French Toast Low Calorie, Low Fat, Healthy BreakfastI knew going in with these, he wasn’t going to be thrilled.  Can you believe he is not a pumpkin fan?  What?  Are you serious?  How can he not like pumpkin?  It’s all you see on Pinterest right now.  (BTW, you can follow me on Pinterest here)  Pumpkin recipes are hot!  Doesn’t he know he should love them?  I do!  Oh well, I guess we can’t all be perfect.  I can overlook this one little fault.

I love the idea of these for Thanksgiving morning.  You can totally make these ahead and freeze them.  Let them defrost in the frig the night before and warm in the oven.  Your family can have a hot breakfast while you are slaving away cooking Thanksgiving dinner.  At least that is one less thing to cook that day.  Plus they are light and healthy leaving you plenty of calories for the main event.  Win-Win!

      Hi Emily, I did not make my own pumpkin butter. Someone had given me a jar as a gift. Here is a recipe for it from Skinny Taste http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/10/pumpkin-butter.html
