Fall’s Best Pumpkin Muffins



I am in a baking mood–here is the most fabulous “paleo” pumpkin muffin recipe you will ever try– I make them every year.  I can’t figure out where I got this recipe.  It is a result of a little bit of research I did back in 09 when I began my clean eating journey.  I hope you like these!

Welcome Fall!!

1 1/2 C almond flour
3/4 c canned pumpkin
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
1/4 c maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp (or more to taste!!) pumpkin pie spice
(sub: 1 tsp cinnamon +  1/4 tsp ground cloves + 1/4 tsp nutmeg)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c raisins

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a spatula or broad spoon.  Use foil muffin liners OR grease the paper ones. Bake at 350 for 20-25 min.  Makes about 12.  Store leftovers in the refrigerator.  Real food perishes.  🙂

These are a treat.  If you want to avoid any added sugar, you can sub 1 mashed ripened banana for the maple syrup.  I have also made these successfully with 1 1/2 c pumpkin and 4 eggs.  Overall these are high in protein and fat, and low in sugar…definitely relieves the pumpkin-bakey-goodness jones that September seems to bring.  These are amazing for an on-the-go breakfast option, afternoon snack with coffee, or as dessert.

These can also easily double as part of a festive centerpiece! Thanks Fran!!

  1. Made these this morning after our WOD. I didn’t have raisins on hand, so I subbed in craisins. I packed two in school lunches and my family polished off the rest in record time. Yum! Thanks for another great recipe.
