Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins
Ahhhh, fall. The air is crisp, the leaves are gorgeous, and everything is pumpkin flavored. Generally, the only thing I like to be pumpkin flavored is pie (pumpkin pie is my fav!) - but I'll make an exception for these muffins!
I was looking for a quick muffin I could whip up as an after school snack and stumbled upon this recipe from Gimmiesomeoven. I had most of the ingredients on hand (as I bet you probably do) so I thought I'd give them a shot!
My favorite thing about these muffins has got to be the texture. Often, when you have a gluten free muffin the texture changes a little (particularly if you're using almond flour).
Not these puppies. If you didn't know better, you'd swear they were made with white flour. (Thank goodness they're not!!).
Soft, moist, fluffy - this wins the texture contest, hands down.
My least favorite thing about these muffins was the trouble I had getting my eggs. Let's just say it involved a trip out to the farm to discover my chickens have become freeloaders (no eggs) and I got my minivan stuck in some *ahem* pig "droppings." It pretty well felt like this.
But since I'm pretty sure you won't have the same trouble that I had, I highly recommend trying these muffins out! Once I had my ingredients, they whipped together in just a few minutes. I'd say after 30 minutes, we had ourselves a great after-school snack.
You might even try adding in some raisins, dried cranberries or chocolate chips. But don't worry if you don't have any on hand -they're tasty just as they are!
