My favorite fall treat – a yummy pumpkin muffin recipe!

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!

Healthy Muffin Recipes that Kids love!

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

Easier and healthy fall baking!

Learn from my mistakes – 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!
