We are muffin fans.

No questions about it.

Yes,I am aware they are essentially cupcakes, but I love them just the same.

Blueberry Mint chocolate Chip, Hot Chocolate even Pancake muffins

all good, but it’s fall and that calls for pumpkin.

 

Grain Free Pumpkin Muffins - no flour, no dairy, no oil

 

The kids are not crazy pumpkin fans, but when you add a few chocolate chips, the muffins disappear. Since I’m doing the no grain thing for a bit, I figured muffins were out, but that is not the case.  I found PLENTY of recipes online {like this one here} and took bits from the best to create a moist, delicious,  and dare I say,  my favorite pumpkin muffin recipe yet.

I had NO idea how they were going to come together, but magically they did. They are much lighter than your typical muffin with all of that great pumpkin spice taste.

If you don’t have coconut flour you can use all almond butter {I used my homemade honey roasted almond butter} but I really enjoyed the hint of coconut.

To make your own pumpkin pie spice {which I really should do more often} combine 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp ground ginger.
