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!Best Healthy Pumpkin Muffins // best healthy pumpkin muffin recipe // homemade pumpkin muffin recipes // healthy breakfast ideas // healthy fall breakfast recipes // 21 day fix approved pumpkin recipe // 21 day fix approved pumpkin muffin // gluten free pumpkin muffin // healthy pumpkin muffin recipe // vegan pumpkin muffins // homemade pumpkin muffins recipe

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?

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray muffin liners with coconut oil and place into muffin tray. Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Separately, mix together the pumpkin, coconut oil, maple syrup, and eggs until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. In parts, add in dry ingredients until just moistened. Using an ice cream scoop, fill muffin cups 3/4 way full. Bake for 15-25 minutes (depending on your pan and oven) until the center of the muffin is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

    We love our muffins and adding chocolate chip is always a plus in my household. Having them healthy is a big bonus I can just keep to myself.

    These look so yummy! I know the maple sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness. I went on a sugar detox before and I need to get back to some of the principles I learned again.

    Love these. And I like the idea of adding some hidden veggies for my little one. Can’t go wrong with that. Looks super easy to make as well.

    These look great!! I especially love that you used soy free ingredients! I feel like a lot of people are vegetarian or gluten free but don’t pay any attention to soy!

      very true!! I feel like paying attention to everything we eat is so important!
