Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins that Actually Rise!


It doesn't matter if you're avoiding gluten or not. These pumpkin muffins are definitely worth making the kitchen a mess.

I cobbled together a few recipes and my own personal gluten-free baking instincts to create this spicy, moist, fluffy, gluten-free muffin. My wheat-eating hubby gobbled these down without hesitation. The texture is so amazing you won't believe they are gluten-free.

Ok, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and give this recipe a whirl!
 
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

In a bowl cream together:
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin puree
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
In another bowl, stir together these dry ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsalted almonds, pulverized in a food processor
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

Now, slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. I filled large, greased muffin tins 2/3 full with the batter to make 6 large muffins. Bake for 28 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. We have a convection oven, so the muffins may take longer to bake in a traditional oven. Use a toothpick to test for doneness. After letting the muffins cool, top them with a simple cream cheese frosting.

My only regret was not doubling this recipe!

    1. Excellent! I love "simple" gluten-free recipes. I'm still getting used to baking with the untraditional ingredients such as xanthan gum, guar gum and the many non-wheat flours. When I can make it work without some of those things, I do it!! Enjoy! I might have to make another batch of these this weekend. YUM!
