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! ↓
Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins Ingredients
Every time I make these pumpkin muffins, my mom asks again and again if my ingredients list is for real. She can’t believe the incredible texture and taste this muffins recipe yields with such guilt-free, wholesome ingredients.
- Pumpkin – I recommend using 100% pumpkin puree from a can, as fresh pumpkin can be overly moist and mess up your pumpkin muffins.
- Oat Flour – you can make your own gluten free oat flour at home, or buy it here.
- Almond Meal – use almond meal for a meal-y, slightly more substantive texture, use almond flour for a fluffier, lighter texture.
- Coconut Oil + Coconut Sugar – feel free to swap the coconut oil with vegan butter, and use a combo of organic cane sugar and brown sugar to swap the coconut sugar.
- Maple Syrup – some readers have reported that brown rice syrup works well here.
- Flax Egg – you can also use a chia egg. Just make sure to use a vegan egg option to keep this recipe vegan.
- Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg – my very favorite fall spice trifecta. If you love pumpkin spice treats, get to know these spices very well. 😉
- Baking Powder, Baking Soda
- Vanilla, Salt
How to Make Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Muffins
Learning how to make gluten free vegan pumpkin muffins is easier than you’d think. We’re simply going to prep wet and dry ingredients, combine them to make a batter, then scoop the batter into a muffin pan and bake!
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners. I like using these parchment liners for nonstick, and these unbleached liners to get the liners to stick prettily to the muffins.
Whisk the Wet Ingredients
Next, add the wet ingredients: pumpkin, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup, a flax egg, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl.
Whisk everything together until cohesive.
Add the Dry Ingredients
Then, add the dry ingredients to the same bowl: oat flour, almond meal or flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt.
You’ll mix everything together to make the vegan gluten free pumpkin muffins batter.
Scoop the Pumpkin Muffin Batter
Now, grab a large scoop to enable much easier scooping of the muffin batter.
Also consider optionally folding in pecans like I have here for a yummy treat!
Here, you’ll scoop and drop pumpkin muffins batter into the lined muffin pan.
Tip: Check out the beautiful domed top the scoop makes! <- This is especially important because the batter bakes up just as it looks raw, so make sure to make it smooth and round before baking.
Bake, Cool, and Enjoy
Bake for about 22 minutes, then cool and enjoy the best ever vegan gluten free pumpkin muffins!
