Easy Muffin Recipe for One
Hello! I just made the easiest oatmeal pumpkin muffins of my life. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now. Try it and let me know.
Before we talk about those muffins, let’s talk about running.
The Revel Race series gives you your race photos for FREE!!! This is awesome! Race photos are so expensive – this is a great perk!
Most of the photos from this weekend’s Revel Canyon City Half Marathon make me look like an old sweaty chonie head, but here’s one of the good ones near the finish line…
This morning I did 6 miles and some post-run exercises for my lil POTM for the day. What are you doing?
And now it’s time for this super delicious pumpkin spice muffin recipe. I have been craving a pumpkin muffin but didn’t want to bake (and eat) a whole batch. I made this recipe for one muffin using ingredients I had on hand. The best part is – it came out so good! I made the recipe again to make sure it worked for one or two muffins and could be doubled too. Yep.
So make one muffin for a snack or double it and make one for yourself and one for your cat.
Then, when he turns up his nose at it you can have two muffins. Boom.
Super Easy Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffin – for One
(Easy – Low-fat – Recipe for 1 – Gluten free)
Ingredients for one Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffin:
- 1 packet maple brown sugar oatmeal (use gf oats if needed)
- 1/4 c pumpkin puree (canned)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp each: pumpkin pie spice & baking soda
- dash: salt
- 2 packets stevia or sugar
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend.
- Pour into a cupcake pan sprayed with non-stick spray (or muffin cup).
Optional: Top with oats, dried cranberries or nuts. Bake for 15-18 minutes until set.
Double or triple recipe if you want extras for tomorrow. I made the recipe with one BIG muffin and made a batch with two smaller ones. Adjust baking time as needed.

Nothing. I was at work and then I went to the hospital to see my new nephew. I am hoping to do something tomorrow.
I worked out with my trainer, and ran a mile and a half! That’s the furthest that I’ve run since I got out of my boot last week. I’m pumped!
Jenn Frost says
Body Pump this morning and then 3 miles
Last rest day. Tomorrow I will be back to exercise.
I probably could’ve done something today, but I worked a 12 hour shift and didn’t want to wake up sicker.
I ran 6 miles yesterday at half marathon pace.

3 miles on the treadmill in .5 and .25 mile repeats.

I did spinning for 45 minutes with abs and then 1 mile on the treadmill.
I did 3 miles, then we hopped in the car for a 3 day road trip in route to my sister’s house and our half marathon on Saturday. About an hour into our drive, i realized i forgot to pack my running skirt for Saturday. I was/am majorly disappointed. Then when we got to our hotel, I realized, i also forgot my swimsuit. Sigh.
3 miles during lunch break 🙂

resy day today but took my dog for a long walk even though it was freezing out!
I got my 22,000 steps in today! I used the elliptical for 15 minutes and walked 2.4 miles on the treadmill. The rest of my steps are from walking to and from school and teaching and walking at lunch. I will be sad when the cold weather hits and I can’t walk to school anymore. Chicago winters are cold and snowy!
Nicole J says
I did 5.5 on the treadmill today.
I knew I wouldn’t have time after work to do anything, so I got up a little earlier and ran 4 miles before work. It went well…but it was VERY DARK!!
Terri Gray says
8 miles today, on the back roads, at an easy pace. My scraped up knee is still pretty sure and my bruises are quite “attractive”. But hey, I consider them like trophies from my hiking adventures. 🙂

5 miles walk with my husband.
3 miles of intervals on the treadmill last night – nothing today, too much school work to do when I get home tonight!
5 miles on the elliptical! Now to make some muffins…
Now that I’m back home, I did the elliptical and a power sculpt yoga class.
3 Miles done! This warm November is sooo nice!
Connie Peters says
Nikki S. says
Do you think those muffins would work coking them in the microwave like a mugcake? They look delicious
Today is a rest day for me, getting over a stomach bug
Run Eat Repeat says
I think it would work to cook it through (so the egg isn’t raw) but won’t be as fluffy. The slower baking from the oven made it the consistency of a muffin. I feel like mug-cakes have a little bit a different consistency.
Today I ran 6.6 miles! It felt great and I was happy to get it in before work!
Lisa N. says
Planning on a 2 mile walk today.
This morning I did 4.3 km! So far this month I’ve gotten in 40.3km out of my 75km goal. Woohoo!

I woke up extra early, not on purpose, but wanted to move. I started at the gym, did 30 minutes of cycling then when the sun came up I got my 5 miles in running a loop out and back to the gym. 10 out of 25 miles for the week yay!
Kristin Bowers says
40 minutes of cross training and some core work!
Kristen K says
Today was supposed be a 7 mile run, but I overslept a little bit and had to cut it down to 5. I’ll make up for it tomorrow!

Another 4 miles although I really wanted to go back to bed.
This morning was a ladder workout at the track! I didn’t want to get out of bed, but I pushed through and I’m so glad I did. The sunrise was amazing and I felt so much better starting my day with a workout 🙂

We need to get the treadmill set up, the place it was last winter now has a drum set.

I went on a 45 minute run, & it was glorious!

Spin tonight — the average 45 minutes spin class covers 15-20 miles, so I’m told… I’m lowballing it and will consider it 15 miles down.
Megan @ Lazy Runner Girl says
4 am treadmill workout – yay!

Got my walk in early today, plus some yoga after. My back feels *amazing* after two yoga sessions this week.
My hip said no thank you to. Run yesterday, but I didn’t listen. So it’s punishing me today. Gonna be a rest day.
