Description

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


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

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare muffin tin by spraying well with cooking spray, or line the tins with paper or silicone liners (affiliate link). Set aside.
  2. In your blender add all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and blend on high-speed until creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Fill each muffin cavity about 3/4 full with the muffin mixture.
  5. 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.
