The Best {Gluten Free} Pumpkin Muffins

I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I love pumpkin. Not only is it a superfood but (to me) it tastes great added in recipes. I will admit though, I am not into it by itself. Are you?

I have made several different recipes with pumpkin, mostly breads and muffins but haven’t made a gluten free version yet, so here ya go… just in time for Thanksgiving! 

My husband and I were really shocked by how good this gluten free version was. He asked me if they had sugar and flour in them, jokingly I said yes, then once I told him no sugar or flour he said we should always make this version.

What you need:

2 1/2 C almond flour
1/2 C flax seed
1/2 C pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/3 C maple syrup
1/4 C coconut oil
2 t pure vanilla
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t sea salt
1+ T pumpkin harvest spice

What to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
  2. If almond flour is coarse, blend up to make flour finer, I used a vitamix- only for about 10 seconds or you’ll make almond butter
  3. Combine wet ingredients into a medium bowl, mix well
  4. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, mix
  5. Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly
  6. Scoop batter into a buttered (or coconut oil-ed) muffin pans until 3/4 full
  7. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until brown, time depends on your muffin sizes
  8. Enjoy!

  1. These look amazing! Do you think raw honey could be substituted for the maple step? I try not to cook with my raw honey because it’s raw, but I’m out of maple syrup. 😉

  3. These look good. I was wondering if the flax seed is ground or whole. I have ground flax seed on hand.
