You can use whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour in this recipe.
To make Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal Muffins, replace ½ cup flour with Oatmeal.
In fact, you can use any gluten-free flour in place of all-purpose flour and make these muffins gluten-free. You can even replace some flour with bran for a healthy twist.
Add pecans, macadamia nuts, almonds, etc for crunch in the batter.
Replace white sugar totally with brown sugar or coconut sugar.
Add pumpkin pie spice in place of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.
Pumpkin spice is basically a mix of all these spices and so instead of adding 3-4 different spice, you can do with a single mix.
Bake the batter in a bread pan instead of muffin cups and make pumpkin bread instead.
Replace eggs with yogurt or flax seeds, for a no eggs recipe.
Add chocolate chips in the batter if you love chocolate.
You can add some grated carrot and dates puree to these muffins.
