It’s that time of the year where everything you bake needs to filled with the flavor of pumpkin. It’s a must, am I right?! There is nothing like having your entire house fill up with the smell of fall. I know, I know. I’m going back and forth on my posts. One day I’m all about Christmas and making these incredible Cranberry Bliss Bars and then the next day I’m back on for Thanksgiving, offering up gluten-free pumpkin muffins. I cannot help it. I’m allowed to change my mind. Even if it is constant 🙂
Regardless, I believe that this season (let us call it Thanksmas) causes me to wanting nothing but to pumpkinify everything I eat or make. And after the pumpkin is added, so are the non-dairy white chocolate chips, cranberries, and ginger. These gluten, egg, and dairy-free muffins have 2 of the 4 mentioned, they will do just the trick for those moments when you need to sink your teeth into something light, fluffy, yummy and any other adjective that is good for describing something delicious.

I love pumpkin & quinoa but the recipe doesn’t list quinoa anywhere!
I am learning to bake corn, potato, oat, gluten, egg and dairy free. Your website is awesome! These muffins are seriously delicious. I did make some changes for our restrictions: 2 cups namaste flour, omitted xantham gum, instead of egg replacer I used 4 teaspoons of ground white chia seeds and 5 tablespoons of water, one tablespoon of potato corn free baking powder.
Oh my goodness I will be making these over and over again! Thank you!!
i don’t have sorghum flour but i do have all purpose flour. can i substitute? and how much do i need for the batch?
Made the muffins for a foundation meeting used 2 eggs and gluten free flour for the strudel they turned out perfect moist and airy. My sister was afraid they might be sandy in texture but they weren’t and couldn’t find arrow root so omitted it Thanks for the wonderful muffins 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE it, Traci! You are so welcome, xo
