You can never have too many pumpkin recipes, right? I thought so. That’s why I had to bring you these amazing muffins this Fall.

These muffins are quick, easy, only require simple ingredients, and are always a hit!

A few healthy muffin tweaks ->

  • sub coconut flour for regular flour – not only does this make them gluten-free, but paleo & grain-free as well
  • they are naturally sweetened with real maple syrup (my favorite sweetener for pretty much everything)
  • they are packed with real pumpkin puree (not just pie spice) – you get all the fiber and antioxidants
  • sub coconut oil for butter – It just changes it up a bit and I love the flavor that coconut oil gives to sweet muffins

And then of course I added dairy-free chocolate chips because we all need a little self-care right now, am I right?!

I knew you would agree.

These pumpkiny muffins are the perfect breakfast alongside an egg scramble, or even a sweet afternoon treat!
