Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Pumpkin Spice Muffins | grain free, gluten free, nut free | AmandaNaturally.comWell it’s about time I posted a pumpkin recipe this fall!

I’m a huge fan of the pumpkin-spice obsession that occurs as of October 1. Normally I stick with homemade pumpkin spice lattes using my pumpkin spice creamer, but sometimes I get a little more creative.

Case in point, this recipe for pumpkin spice muffins! I opened a 500mL can of pureed pumpkin for a few PSLs last week and knew I was running out of time before the remaining pumpkin went bad, so I whipped up a few dozen of these bad boys.

I have a feeling these Pumpkin Spice Muffins will become a common occurrence in our household!

NOTE: you will likely want to double this recipe. If you don’t think you will be able to finish them within a week (you will though, trust me), they freeze really well!

PS. Have extra pumpkin puree? Why not make some delicious no bake pumpkin pie squares?

Wet Ingredients
  1. 6 eggs, brought to room temperature
  2. ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  3. ¼ cup honey
  4. ½ tsp vanilla extract
  5. 1½ cups pumpkin puree
  6. ½ cup mashed ripe banana
Dry Ingredients
  1. 1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  2. ½ cup coconut flour, sifted
  3. 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (increase if you like really spicy muffins)
  4. 1 tsp cinnamon
  5. ½ tsp sea salt
  6. ½ tsp baking soda
Optional Ingredients
  1. raisins
  2. chopped dates
  3. pecans
  4. walnuts
  5. chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line muffin tin with silicon liners.
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in another bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix really well. It will thicken up after a few minutes.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop a generous serving into each muffin liner. They don't rise a lot, so fill them up to the top!
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until set and slightly golden.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!
Notes
  1. It is important to have the eggs at room temperature so they don't cause the coconut oil to solidify. If you don't have time to leave them out, simply place them in a bowl and cover with hot tap water for about 10 minutes, while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. These muffins freeze really well so I always make a double batch and freeze half.
