No, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins Do Not All Taste Like Cardboard

February 07, 2019

If you're one of the 2.7 million Americans who avoids gluten in their diet, don't worry: That doesn't mean you can't have fall-favorite foods like pumpkin muffins. You just have to find the right recipe. This one contains a simple ingredient list, and the muffins can be whipped up and thrown in the oven in five minutes flat.

These gluten-free pumpkin muffins are made with a base of oats and almond flour—both of which are heart-healthy, versatile ingredients in baking. Meanwhile, the pumpkin puree and almond milk make the muffins moist, and the natural sweetness comes from honey, not sugar. Top it all off with mini chocolate chips—because duh, chocolate—and you're looking at a tasty fall snack that's under 150 calories.

Makes: 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1 ½ cup dry oats*
  • ½ cup almond flour*

  • ½ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips*

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin cups.
  2. Place the oats in a food processor and pulse until mostly ground. Add in the pure pumpkin, almond flour, honey, salt, cinnamon, and almond milk. Pulse until mostly smooth.
  3. Add in the mini chocolate chips and baking powder. Pulse for 10 seconds.
