The best healthy pumpkin muffins recipe that’s made with oat flour and gluten free but still delicious, without refined sugar, and quick and easy to make!
Pumpkin muffins are always a welcome baking project, but an absolute must in Fall. If your hang up is all the refined sugar, flour, butter and other not so healthy stuff, I feel you. While there’s a time and a place for all of that (in my opinion), on the day to day, it’s important to get more nutritious food into our bodies.
If you feel the same, try these pumpkin muffins! You won’t miss all of the crap you find in most muffin recipes one bit and all of your wildest pumpkin muffin filled dreams will be fulfilled.
They aren’t filled with unhealthy ingredients or random hard to find gluten free flours (what even is cassava flour?!). This healthy pumpkin muffin recipe just uses good ol’ ground up oats for flour, which most people have on hand already. They’re perfectly moist with just the right amount of sweetness and spice.
Grinding the oats takes one extra step, but you can throw the rest of the dry ingredients in with them so you aren’t making another bowl dirty. Whose got time for recipes that aren’t quick and easy these days anyways?
