Almond Flour Pumpkin Muffins

I tried so put this off for as long as possible, but I have finally given in to pumpkin baking. In my books, waiting until October 15 can be classified as a personal victory but I now have regrets I waited so long because these muffins are so delicious! They are super moist thanks to the pumpkin puree (which can be canned or homemade) and almond flour and have a wonderful richness in flavour from the combination of spices.

Why these Paleo Pumpkin Muffins are so good:

  • Pumpkin Spice: need I say more. It’s slightly spicy with the wonderful combination of warming spice blend. It’s autumn, in a muffin.
  • One bowl, 30 minutes: They are so quick and easy to whip up! Mix everything together in a bowl and leave them to bake for 20 minutes. Added bonus, your house will smell AMAZING.
  • The flavour! The bold pumpkin spice flavour means there is no need to top these with jam or nut butter, they are so dang tasty on their own. 
  • They are Paleo: Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free and Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal too!

Tips for making these Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

  • Use muffins liners or spray the muffin cups with oil: I find muffin cups to be the most reliable, but if you don’t have any, you can use a cooking spray or alternatively dip a paper towel in melted coconut oil and rub it around the inside of each cup.
  • Fill em right up to the top: As with all grain free muffins, fill the muffin cups right to the top with batter as they won’t rise when baking. 
  • Keep an eye on them while they bake: Depending on your oven (mine is old and TERRIBLE) the muffins may start to brown on top before being cooked all the way through. I usually like to leave them to bake for 10 minutes, and then cover them with tin foil for the remaining time so they don’t burn.
  • Patience! Allow the muffins to cool for 8-10 minutes before removing them from the tray, if they are too hot when they are removed they will fall apart.

Other notes and substitutions for this recipe:

  • Make it a loaf: You can alternatively make these paleo pumpkin muffins into a loaf. Pour the batter into a 9×5 inch loaf pan and bake in the oven at 350º Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: Replace the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves with 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice.
  • Add some nuts: Feel free to add 1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts to the batter for added crunch
  • Storage: These grain free pumpkin muffins are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Alternatively they can be frozen for up to 3 months.
