- Lightly grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, lemon peel, cinnamon, baking soda, allspice, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture.
- In another medium bowl, combine egg, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, and oil. Add all at once to flour mixture.
