These gluten free pumpkin muffins are made with almond flour and coconut flour for delicious, nutritious, perfectly-spiced muffins. Perfect for autumn-inspired baking!
I originally shared back in November 2012, but the recipe needed a little tweaking (another egg is now in the mix). Plus, the original photos were terrible and needed an update! So: I’m re-introducing these delicious pumpkin muffins to you in hopes that you enjoy them as much as we have. 🙂
Almond Flour Pumpkin Muffins
I made a batch of these over the weekend and both Matt and I gave them two thumbs up! They make an awesome, satisfying breakfast (hello, fiber and healthy fat!) or afternoon snack. I have one in my bag for later today – can’t wait to enjoy it. 🙂
These gluten free pumpkin muffins are made with a combination of coconut flour and almond flour, making them nutty and flavorful while keeping them gluten-free as well. They’re moist and creamy – almost like a nutty pumpkin pie filling. Yum!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffin Ingredients
To make these pumpkin muffins, you’ll need:
- pureed pumpkin (You can puree pumpkin yourself, or save time with canned pumpkin! Just make sure it’s plain, not the kind with sugars/spices already added.)
- almond flour
- coconut flour
- milk or almond milk
- maple syrup or honey
- baking powder
- spices (clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon)
- vanilla extract
How to Make Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins
As always, this recipe is easy as can be!
Simply mix your dry and wet together in separate bowls, then combine and pour batter into muffin tins. You can make these into mini-muffins or regular muffins – whichever you prefer!
Mini muffins usually bake for around 25 minutes at 350 degrees F, and regular-sized muffins should bake for around 50 minutes.
Use a fork or toothpick to check if they’re done. It should come out mostly clean, with minimal or no crumbs. Cool on a wire rack, then dig in!
These would also be amazing with a dollop of Greek yogurt or almond butter.
Storage & Reheating Tips
I’d suggest storing these in an airtight container in the fridge so they last longer! Just heat in the microwave about 20 seconds before eating for max deliciousness.
You can also easily freeze them for later! Just wrap individually and place in a freezable bag or container.
You’ll find the full gluten free pumpkin muffins recipe at the end of this post. Enjoy! I know I’ll be nomming on these all autumn long. 🙂
