For over a year, I have been an avid reader of Megan’s Munchies. Megan is not only adorable, but she is a regular kitchen genius! Most of her recipes are not gluten free, but she always offers me inspiration.
With the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Megan began posting recipes with a pumpkin theme. Last year Megan posted a ton of pumpkin recipes, and in all honesty, she opened my eyes to the fact that pumpkin is NOT just for pie. And so I baked my FIRST pumpkin recipe, and as it turns out, not only I was able to enjoy it!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins
1 1/2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour (I used Beth’s)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cup pureed pumpkin (the ingredient list should be just pumpkin, no spice)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk the pumpkin, oil, eggs, pie spice, sugar, baking soda, and salt until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Then add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and whisk until just combined.
The batter will be THICK. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and spray with cooking spray. Drop in a spoon full of batter and smooth the top. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and then bake for 25-30 minutes.
Tasty! These would be great with a Maple Cream Cheese icing. The next time I make this recipe I think I’ll try using a mixture of raw sugar and brown sugar. But I was more than pleased with the recipe!
Gluten Free and GOOOOOOOD!
