Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

This is a simple pumpkin muffin base.  I have them pictured below with chocolate chips, but you could easily add your favorite nuts as well.  I prefer not to use cupcake liners, as I like the texture on the outside to have a slight crunch and the center to stay very moist.  The mini-size muffins are a hit with the kids!

I like to sprinkle the chocolate chips or nuts on top as opposed to stirring into the batter.  That way you can make both kinds and please everyone :)

  • I am allergic to tree nuts so no almond flour for me. I am going to try substituting soy flour for that in the muffin recipe. What do you think? I have made banana bread following a regular recipe except for the flour,even using the same flour measurement. It came out great,just “heavier” . You story is an inspiration. Thnk you. I am glad I found your site!

  • These were amazing. I wrote out the recipe by hand and somehow left out the almond flour. Just using the 1/3 cup of coconut flour they still turned out great. A little more moist I think likely but still great. My husband prefers them to traditional pumpkin muffins made with sugar and all purpose flour. Looking forward to seeing how they taste with the almond flour added next time.

  • Love these muffins! Just what I needed for my fall pumpkin fix. Will probably make these year round–so moist! I make them with chocolate chips. Love your recipes!
