Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins with Goat Cheese Frosting

Never thought the frosting would tastes so good. Many other muffing recipes in Tastes & Treasures Cookbook.

Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins with Goat Cheese Frosting

2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup non-GMO Canola oil
1/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 cup oatmeal
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
6-8 oz (-ish) goat cheese
1/2 cup (-ish) honey
fresh rind from 1 lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract or fresh vanilla bean pods

Heat over to 375. Grease muffin tin or add paper liners.
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients into another.
Then combine the dry into the wet, careful to not over mix! Fill prepared muffin tin with mixture about 3/4 way full.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until muffins are done (test with a wood skewer, should come out clean).

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl! WARNING. This mix is dangerously delicious... Wait until the muffins are completely cool and top each with a smear of frosting!

Did you know...
This frosting was a total mistake. I thought the goat cheese was cream cheese but low and behold, it turned out even better... makes you think twice about what we believe a mistake to be ;)
