Preheat oven to 350f.
Using a hand or stand mixer combine in large bowl:
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
1 15 oz. can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional, but So Yummy)
In separate bowl gently whisk together:
1 c. all purpose flour
1 c. oat bran
1 1/2 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice (optional, but So Yummy)
Topping: combine 1/4 cup white sugar & 1 Tbs. cinnamon
Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined.
Line muffin tin with paper muffin cups and fill cups 3/4 full. The fuller they are increases the possibility for those coveted muffin tops.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake at 350f. for approx. 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Makes 12-15 muffins
