How soon is too soon to start making and sharing pumpkin recipes?
I’m of the school of thought that pumpkin should be enjoyed all year long. But some folks like to keep that gorgeously bright orange fruit for one time of the year: fall. 🙂
Now, I don’t want people feeling like we’re rushing into fall, but I also want everyone to feel like we’re nice and ready for all the festive fun that’s to come. So we’re gonna start things nice and easy with this Easy Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins Recipe. I mean, look at this muffin–the center is everything! ↓
It’s a no-frills, totally delicious, and very easy-to-make entrée into my favorite season of the year: autumn. Since moving to the East Coast, I’ve come to enjoy fall so much more.
The winters have been particularly brutal (here’s looking at you, Maine!!), the summers have been hotter and wetter than I’m accustomed to in California, and the spring… well, we kinda skipped over that this year (now the spotlight swings over to you, Boston!!). 😉
This year, I’m more determined than ever to make the most of fall: fall baking, fall activities, fall everything! What are your favorite aspects of fall? .
- Warm, cozy blankets
- Cute fall boots!!! It’s brisk enough to wear them, but not too cold or wintry that it’ll give your boots the boot. 😉
- Hayrides, mazes, and the fun in-between
- Pumpkin picking (both mini and large… but really the minis!!)
- Warm apple cider
- …and cozy paleo apple pecan crisps

Recommended Tools for the Best Easy Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins!
- Ice Cream Scoop: Yep, I said it: an ice cream scoop! This ice cream scoop is the best way to scoop your pumpkin muffin batter & drop it into your muffin cups… to achieve a perfectly round, beautifully domed muffin top. This batter bakes up almost exactly as it looks when raw–so it’s super important to give it that round top before baking. This scoop does the trick.
- 4oz Prep Bowls: These prep bowls are just the perfect size for getting your vegan pumpkin muffin ingredients ready for a seamless kitchen experience. They’re big enough to hold 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and small enough to not crowd counter space. 😉
- Cupcake Muffin Holder: Super convenient way to transport your vegan gluten free muffins! This container holds 24 muffins or cupcakes.
- 4 Event Timer: Seriously one of my favorite kitchen tools EVER. This super cool timer helps you keep track of 4 different events at once! I love using it to keep track of bake time, cool time in pan, cool time on rack, and bake time for my second recipe.

Easy Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins Recipe (V, GF): an easy recipe for moist ‘n fluffy pumpkin muffins bursting with your favorite fall spices. Made with healthy, whole ingredients. Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free.
- 1 cup 100% pure pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 15 mins)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in a standard, 12 muffin pan. Set aside.
- Add the wet ingredients to a large bowl: pumpkin, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
- Add the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Whisk together until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain. The batter will be thick. If needed, use a rubber spatula to fold in the last bit of flour.
- Using a large scoop, scoop and drop batter evenly into the muffin pan. I use this ice cream scoop to create beautiful domed tops. If not using a scoop, use a rubber spatula to smooth batter into an even layer with a domed top. To make large, domed tops, spread batter between 8-9 muffin cups.
- Bake for 18-25 minutes (on the longer spectrum for larger, fewer muffins). Mine took 22 minutes.
- Allow muffins to cool in muffin pan on a cooling rack for 1 hour, or until completely cool. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

- *If using homemade oat flour, make sure to sift the flour to remove coarse bits of oats that could create grainy, overly moist muffins without domed tops.
- **Instead of these three spices, you may use: 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice.
