Best Healthy Pumpkin Muffins
What about sugar?
Our sugar detox kicks off today so its rather ironic that I’m posting a recipe for muffins. When I think muffins, I think huge, delicious, and full of sugar. BUT these muffins have no refined sugar and are both gluten-free and vegan. Too good to be true? Nope!
You could say they are the best healthy pumpkin muffins EVER. Because anything with chocolate is delicious, am I right? The key to these pumpkins is sweetening them with raw, plant-based ingredients like raw honey.
I added in just a bit of chocolate sweetness using Enjoy Life Brand, which are delicious dairy and soy free chocolate chips (don’t knock it til you’ve tried it!) I am almost always a sweet breakfast eater, so if I’m not munching on a quinoa bowl or this yummy granola recipe, I’m going to be grabbing one of these muffins! Also!! These muffins are KID-FRIENDLY! My daughters loved them. I’m even thinking you could do a hidden-veggie in these muffins and totally fake out your kids. Mixing in some pureed carrot in place of the pumpkin would be a great way to get some veggies in your little ones!
Don’t forget to do this!
I forgot to spray my baking cups! I think spraying these lightly with some coconut oil would have had them coming out of their baking cups a little easier. That didn’t stop my girls from licking the muffin out of the cups though. Yep, they are that good!
So I’m curious, are you still on the pumpkin train? And are you more of a savory or sweet kind of a breakfast eater?
