gluten free + comforting pumpkin spice muffins

The recipe shared today are pumpkin spice muffins from the Broma Bakery blog. Well, actually it is a gluten free pumpkin bread recipe. I didn’t feel like cutting bread (I am awful at it the best of times) so I made an executive decision to divide the batter amongst a muffin tin instead.

The original recipe is practically perfect. Only a few adjustments were made due to the lack of items in my pantry!

Favourite Takeaways:

  1. Incredibly moist
  2. Not a terrible amount of sugar
  3. A perfect muffin from September to December

These pumpkin spice muffins are very light and fluffy too!! This is also a great recipe if you ever have any leftover pumpkin puree that needs to be used.

alteration notes:

  • Increased baking powder
  • Reduced salt
  • Used pumpkin spice
  • Omitted nutmeg + cloves
  • Increased cinnamon
  • Used regular milk
  • Used olive oil

approximate times:

  • Prep: 10-15 minutes
  • Bake: 14-17 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Prep a muffin pan with baking cups or parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, spice, salt
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, set aside
  5. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, syrup, puree, milk, vanilla
  6. Transfer the wet mixture to the dry mixture – lightly mix until combined
  7. Divide batter evenly amongst muffin tins (filled to the top)
  8. Bake for 14-17 mins or until a toothpick (insert in the centre) comes out clean – should be a rich brown
  9. Cool slightly (1-2 mins) before transferring onto a cooling rack

further insights:

  • serves 11 medium/large or 12 small/medium (GF flour tends to yield less)
  • chose a Gluten Free flour with Xanthan Gum
  • combined the wet to dry mixture using a spatula
  • used a 1/2 measuring cup to divide the batter
  • can be made ahead and stored in airtight container – about 1 day prior
  • freezes well in airtight container
