Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. Xanthan Gum - If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your muffins grainy.
  4. To make this recipe nut-free, omit the ½ cup of almond flour and substitute an additional ¼ cup gluten free flour blend.
  5. If you want your muffins to have a domed style top, bake at 425º F for the first 5 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350º F.
  6. These muffins will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.

How to roast a pumpkin:

You can use canned pumpkin puree as I did, or you can roast your own pumpkin
  1. Cut a pumpkin in half.
  2. Scoop out the seeds and brush olive oil on the pumpkin flesh.
  3. Roast the pumpkin skin side down in a baking pan at 375º F for 40 minutes until the pumpkin is soft.
  4. To make your puree, you will want to scoop out the cooked pumpkin and add it to a blender. Add a little water so that your puree is very smooth. If the pumpkin puree is too thick, it will prevent these muffins from getting light and fluffy.
