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.
- ½ coconut flour
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
