Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s that time of year again. The time I look forward to all year long. Pumpkin everything season. I couldn’t be any happier. I made these muffins last night and they’re gone already. They are moist and tasty and made from REAL FOODS THAT HEAL! Check out what’s in them and why you don’t have to feel guilty for eating these nutrient dense muffins:

Pumpkin– chock full of beta-carotene that protects against cancer. Beta-carotene also converts to vitamin A and keeps your eyesight sharp. Pumpkin also aids in weight loss since it’s low in calories and high in fiber which keeps you feeling full.

Almond butter– the most nutrient dense nut of all, almonds are high in protein, fiber, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids. They protect against diabetes by controlling blood sugar and protect the heart by reducing LDL cholesterol.

Egg– high in protein and healthy fat, eggs are a nutrient dense food for all to enjoy. Eggs are high in sulfur, which aids in vitamin B absorption, promotes liver function and enhances collagen production for healthy hair, skin and nails.

Raw honey– boosts the immune system, full of disease-fighting antioxidants and acts as a sleep-aid by helping the body to release melatonin in the brain.

Coconut oil– great for so many things, coconut oil  is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, boosts immunity, promotes healthy thyroid function, aids in weight loss, boosts metabolism and balances hormones. Can you say SUPERFOOD?!

Almond meal– much healthier than processed white flour, almond meal is just ground up almonds and with all of their health benefits!

Coconut flour– extremely high in fiber which aids digestion and keeps you feeling full.

  2. Delicious pumpkin muffins….thank you so much for the recipe !!
    I have 2questions.
    First…my batter appeared to fill up the the cups more than what I thought they would / should. The bottom of the muffins are definitely too well done. I had to bake longer so the inside would be fully baked. Please advise what I may try next time. I have not been much of a baker in the past but with my daughter being glutent intolerant, I am trying new things.
    I doubled the recipe in hopes of being able to freeze some…I will try a few in the freezer but just wonder if you have done so and if they are fine afterwards.
    Thank you kindly,
    Rebecca

    • Hi! So glad you like them. Try putting them on the top rack when baking so the bottom doesn’t burn. Your oven may run hot. You could always turn the temp down and just bake them longer too. They should freeze nicely. Let me know how they do!
