Flourless Pumpkin Muffins

Flourless pumpkin muffins made with almond butter and pumpkin. No flour, no oil and no dairy. 9 grams of protein in each muffin!

They have pumpkin in them, of course. It’s fall and you’re reading EBF — if I’m making a baked good right now, there’s a 99% chance it’s going to have pumpkin in it.

Flourless Muffins? Yup!

The exciting part about these muffins isn’t what’s in them, it’s what’s not in them! There’s no flour (not even coconut flour or almond flour), no oil or butter, no dairy, and they only contain a small amount of added sugar from the honey and chocolate chips. I’ve never baked muffins without any flour so I was shocked that they they turned out looking and tasting like real muffins, not dense balls of pumpkin and almond butter. Granted, I would have still eaten the balls, because those sound pretty good too. hmmm… maybe I have another recipe idea on my hands. 🙂

Another awesome feature is that the muffins come together in minutes and there’s no mixing bowls to clean because you blend the batter in your blender or mini chopper. I have to thank Averie of Averie Cooks for the blender muffin idea. She’s a genius!

These muffins have been recipe-tested then taste-tested by several of our friends and we can all agree that they’re pretty darn good. There are only two left after making a full batch on Saturday. I’ll take that as a sign that I’ll be making these again soon.

I hope you all like them as much as we do!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/3 cups almond butter
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons pumpkin pie spice*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips I used Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare muffin tin by spraying well with cooking spray, or line the tins with paper or silicone liners. Set aside.
  • In your blender add all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and blend on high-speed until creamy, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  • Fill each muffin cavity about 3/4 full with the muffin mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean without any batter.  (See below for cook time for mini muffins). Allow muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes or until they are firm enough and cool enough to handle. Remove from tin and let cool completely on a wire rack. Muffins are always best fresh, but these will keep airtight at room temperature for about 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Notes

  • I used pumpkin pie spice in this recipe, if you don't have any or can't find it, you can make your own with ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
  • For mini muffins, bake for 7-8 minutes. 1 batch will make 36 mini muffins.
