  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line 6 regular muffin tins with paper baking cups or lightly coat the bottoms only with vegetable cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) oats, 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt (if using).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, egg, milk, and margarine. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the pumpkin mixture, Mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overmix.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling almost full.
  • To make the topping, mix together the remaining 2 tablespoon of oats, remaining 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar, orange zest, and 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over the top of each muffin.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached. Cool the muffins in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing. Serve warm.
