Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

There’s nothing better in the fall than pumpkins.  At our house, we love to make gluten-free pumpkin muffins!


We try to incorporate pumpkin into everything at our house.


Our gluten-free pumpkin muffins are one of the favorites we’ve been making for years!

The best part of cooking with pumpkin is all the spices that go along with it.  They embrace your kitchen and create a soothing, peaceful atmosphere within your home.


These make the perfect afternoon snack or breakfast on the go.

    • Oil or line muffin tins with baking cups. Coconut oil or Earth Balance butter work well. Scoop batter into muffin tins, filling to the rim of each cup.
    • Bake in preheated oven according to size: *small mini-muffin pans: about 20 minutes, *Regular muffin tins: 25-30 minutes
    • Knife should come out clean when completely baked. *They will dry out if over baked.
    • Makes one dozen muffins or about 24 mini muffins.

    It is best to freeze whatever you don’t eat the day you bake these muffins.
    To Freeze: Place muffins on a baking rack in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Take out of freezer and place in a container or freezer bag. Replace in the freezer until ready to eat.
    If not frozen, after a couple of days, they may dry out and start to crumble.
