grain-free pumpkin muffins

these grain-free pumpkin muffins have all the flavors of fall and right into winter.  they come together super fast and make a perfect warm breakfast or a side for afternoon tea.  they also reheat perfectly (or you can eat them cold) after a day or two in the fridge.

we made these for breakfast while my college boy was home (and mom-in-law was visiting!), and they didn’t even need butter.  topped with a bit of warm cashew cream glaze, they were perfect.  though coconut flour can be dry, these are moist and dense, filling you up just enough; hearty but not heavy.

allrecipes.com is one of my favorite go-to websites for recipes. i’ve been working with them for years as a brand ambassador, have photographed tons of recipes, and have watched the magazine develop and have been privileged to be featured with writing and event attendance.  this recipe was inspired by a “paleo-ish” pumpkin muffin recipe shared by an allrecipes user, with a few easy tweaks.
