Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe (GF): this easy gluten free pumpkin muffins recipe makes perfectly spiced pumpkin muffins! The best GF pumpkin muffins—made in 1-bowl with healthy, whole ingredients.



Wet Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

Add-in Ingredients

Optional Topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in a standard, 12-muffin pan. Set aside.
  2. Add the wet ingredients to a large bowl: pumpkin, coconut oil, maple syrup, sugar, flax egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Add the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond meal, baking soda, baking powder, spice and salt. Whisk as long as you can—the batter will be thick. Switch to folding with a rubber spatula until no flour patches remain. Do not add additional liquids—the batter is meant to be very thick. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. 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—the batter will bake up very close to how it looks raw. To make large, domed tops, spread batter between 9 muffin cups.
  5. Bake for 18-25 minutes (on the longer end for larger, fewer muffins). Mine took 22 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for 1 hour, or until completely cool. Enjoy!

  • *If using homemade oat flour, make sure to sift the flour to remove coarse bits of oats that could create grainy muffins.
  • **Instead of pumpkin pie spice, you can use: 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground cloves, and ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg.
  • To Store: cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  • To Transport: use this muffin holder. It’s two tiered and holds two batches of muffins!
