Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

There is an unmistakable nip in the air.  Our winter squash and pumpkin plants are all retired for the season.  We planted sugar pumpkins for the first time and what a harvest we raked in!  I’ll be making pumpkin puree in quantity for our freezer, but we had to try those cute round gems out for flavor so I made these Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins, which happen to also be dairy free and gluten free.

Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Pumpkin season is upon us.



1 cup roasted almond butter

4 large eggs

3/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ginger

6 tablespoons coconut flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place ingredients in a food processor with an “s” blade.  Process until ingredients are smooth and well blended.  Scoop batter into muffin tins.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.  They may not last long so you might want to make a batch to eat and one to freeze.

  1. I am excited to try these. Your pumpkins are beautiful! What would you substitute for the almond butter as a nut free option?

    1. I haven’t made them with a different “butter” but you can try Sunbutter which is sunflower seed butter. Please let us all know how they turn out. Thanks Stacey

  2. Pumpkin happens to be one of my husband’s favorite flavors. He goes crazy this time of year over pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread…you name it. I’ll have to give him this recipe=)
