even though it is 80 degrees here in malibu, i still cannot pass up celebrating pumpkin season. my aunt, a nutrition and wellness consultant, always has the healthiest (and yummiest!) recipes on her beautiful website. i was perusing her site, having a craving for pumpkin of course, and i saw these easy-to-make, healthy pumpkin muffins, i just couldn't pass up. i shared them with my friends the evening i made them and heard nothing but rave reviews. i plan to make these again for a thanksgiving treat!
sugar free pumpkin muffins

ingredients - dry
2 cups almond meal
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger

ingredients - wet
3/4 cup pure canned pumpkin (make sure not to get the pumpkin pie mix, it has lots of sugar)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup coconut nectar (i used agave nectar as a substitute here)
1/3 coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

in a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and stir to combine. in a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. add wet to dry and mix well, until batter is formed. line or spray a muffin tin, and fill cups about half way with batter.

cook 18-20 minutes, or until tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

make sure to try one warm, fresh out of the oven! enjoy!

xo,
natalie
