Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins at The Gluten-Free Homemaker

These paleo pumpkin muffins are soft, moist, and full of fall flavors. For so long I avoided using almond and coconut flours because I didn’t have to use them. Now that I am grain free, I do have to use them (if I want to bake), and I’m wondering why I didn’t use them sooner.

Whether you are paleo, grain free, or simply gluten free, these flours are worth adding to your pantry. They are low in carbs and contain good fats, fiber, and protein. They make soft, moist gluten-free baked goods that hold together without xanthan gum.

These paleo pumpkin muffins are a great example. My family loved these. They are lightly sweetened with honey. If you want a sweeter muffin, try adding additional honey, maple syrup, or sugar. Coconut sugar would also be good in these.

I apologize for the recipe making only 10 muffins. That always bugs me, but sometimes, that’s just how it turns out.

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

I originally published this gluten-free apple crisp recipe almost three years ago. I wanted to bring it back today because it’s a great fall apple dessert and while most apple crisp recipes use oats, this one does not. While I know there are gluten-free oats available, I also know that many people cannot tolerate even […]
