Today’s Pumpkin and Pinterest feature recipe are Classic from Making Healthy Choices.

These have an extra bit of flare with the added pumpkin seeds on the top.

I made a couple of changes to the original recipe.

I swapped the buttermilk for 1 cup of yogurt.

I added 2 Tablespoons of flaxseed meal

I swapped 1 cup of all-purpose flour for oat flour (oatmeal run through the processor)
