Grain Free Pumpkin Muffins

Grain Free Pumpkin Muffins


  • 1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (as lump free as possible!)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer combine pumpkin puree, coconut oil, banana, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix well, until no lumps remain.
  • Beat eggs in a small mixing bowl until well combined and then add to the wet mixture.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg and pink salt. Whisk together.
  • Add dry mixture to wet mixture, combining thoroughly (slow speed on a stand mixer).
  • Line a 12 tin muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  • Scoop batter into muffin tins, dividing evenly among the liners. Top with rough chopped pecans.
  • Bake muffins for 13-17 minutes, checking with a toothpick for doneness. When it comes out clean from the center the muffins are done.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

    These turned out excellent. I have already passed along the recipe to numerous people. I found I had to bake longer (somewhere around 22 minutes), which may be related to high altitude–use that toothpick. Also sprinkled some coconut sugar and cinnamon on top with the pecans.
