Super Simple Pumpkin Muffins

Leave a comment


A couple weeks ago, my four-year-old decided she wanted to make some pumpkins muffins for her playdate which was that afternoon (this was at lunch). So during lunch we googled a bunch of recipes, took stock of what we had in the house and made something up. We made them again tonight and added a very small amount of chocolate chips for fun. Here’s our gluten free, paleo-friendly, easy-to-make-while-nine-months-pregnant-with-a-toddler-and-a-preschooler pumpkin muffins.

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350
Mix all ingredients together
Put in muffins tins (lined or greased)
Cook for 32-35 min

What you need:
2 c. almond meal/flour (we like Just Almonds from Trader Joes)
1 ripe banana
1 can pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c chopped walnuts and pecans
1/4 c chocolate chips (if you’re feeling like making these for dessert instead of breakfast)

One bowl and all mixed together makes it easy to make with kiddos. Enjoy!
