Perfect and yummy as is or add chocolate chips or raisins!

Nothing says Fall like pumpkin muffins and pumpkin bread!

And we can’t get enough of these.

Based on a family recipe adapted to be gluten-free, it’s the perfect classic pumpkin muffin recipe.

The muffins are soft and fluffy, moist, have a great consistency and just the right flavor- not too sweet, not overly spiced.

And they are so yummy!

And it is a super easy recipe that takes only 15 minutes to prep.

All you need is 12 pantry staple ingredients (including water and salt!): canned pumpkin, gluten-free flour (we use GF Jules – affiliate link), baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ground cloves, sugar, butter or dairy-free butter, walnuts (omit if nut-free), eggs, salt and water.

The batter comes together in no time. Then bakes for 35 minutes.

Once out of the oven, best to let them cool but someone always takes at least one while they are still hot in my house!

It doubles well, muffins freeze well and you could add in chocolate chips, raisins or any any other add in you like!

Hope you love them as much as we do!

  1. These are a staple in our home! We add about a half of a cup of ground flax and they are great for GI regularity for my 4 year old with celiac and my 1 year old as well! We do the same thing with the pumpkin donut recipe. A pumpkin muffin or donut a day keeps the doctor away in our house!

    Karen, your site was one of the first places I visited when my son was diagnosed with celiac last year. I remember reading about your family’s journey and you have truly been a big part of how I’ve approached this diagnosis and change in our family. When I read about your commitment to help your son be comfortable and self sufficient surrounding food I knew that I wanted the same thing for my sweet boy. Little did I know that I would be diagnosed with celiac just a few months later as well. You have given me confidence to approach this gluten free life with joy and positivity. That’s amazing πŸ€—

    Your recipes and tips/tricks have been instrumental in our transition to a healthy gluten free home. I feel like I owe you more than a thank you comment on this recipe but had to share this somewhere!

    What you do every day reaches and impacts people you may not even know about! I am so grateful for you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do ❀️
