How To Make Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the honey, pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, spices, and baking soda and mix thoroughly until combined.
  • Add in the almond flour and coconut flour, and mix until a batter is formed.
  • Line a standard size muffin tin with parchment muffin liners, and pour the batter in until it fills the cup a little over halfway.
  • Bake for 25-28 minutes until the middles look set.
  • Let the pumpkin muffins cool in the pan for 15 minutes before serving.

For this particular muffin recipe, it’s important to let them cool for about 15 minutes in the pan before taking them out to continue cooling.  This will ensure they have the perfect texture and won’t be too wet inside.

If you read my Cinnamon Streusel Muffin post, you’ll remember how I raved about these parchment paper muffin liners. They are essential for baking, in my opinion.  And if you can believe it, these gluten free, dairy free, paleo pumpkin muffins taste even BETTER the next day!  Enjoy!
