Gluten-Free Blender Pumpkin Muffins

Blender muffins are the best, as you put all ingredients right into the blender, mix, scoop, bake, and then you have some freshly baked muffins! That means little mess and more time for YOU. You can't go wrong with pumpkin and chocolate!

These muffins are perfect to add to your meal prep for breakfast, snack time or just as a dessert. I like to slather almond butter or jam on a warm muffin. They are fluffy, moist and even better they freeze perfectly!

I made this recipe as I love all things pumpkin but it’s actually a great muffin base as the flavor combinations are endless! Pumpkin puree makes the muffin rich and fluffy; however, it can be subbed out for applesauce or even sweet potato puree. The best part if you don't have olive oil on hand you can sub in coconut oil or nut butter, as I traditionally make it that way.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Blender Muffin Ingredients

Almond Flour: Almond Flour makes these muffins so fluffy, with a nutty base. However, you can use rolled oats, which adds a hearty texture and gets that fiber in. If you’re looking for a gluten-free version just make sure the oats are certified gluten free.

Eggs: I love using eggs to help bind these muffins. I have tried making a flaxseed egg by using 1 tbsp flaxseeds to 3 tablespoon water and having it sit for 5 minutes to thicken. The muffins are a bit more dense but still delicious, plus vegan friendly.

Pumpkin Puree: Now adding pumpkin helps to keep these muffins light and moist while also amping up the nutritional benefits. Make sure to read those labels for no sugar added and don’t get pumpkin pie filling.

Maple Syrup: I love using maple syrup for everything from lattes to muffins, as it adds some natural sweetness. However, you can also use honey but I have never subbed this in yet.

Baking Powder and Baking Soda: I’ve been adding in both when making muffins, as I’ve found it gives the best structure and height to the muffins. Don’t forget to add both to get the best muffins possible! This duel combo helps so much.

Salt and Spices: Now these really make the muffins shine through and take it to the next level! Use individual spices or buy a premade spice mix like pumpkin pie spice. The cinnamon, nutmeg and the vanilla help add natural sweetness, so don’t forget to add these in!

Add-Ins: Now you can go crazy here and use what you have in your pantry. I love pumpkin and chocolate chips but any fruit works from blueberries to diced apple or try some nuts like walnuts or almonds for an added crunch. You can make a different muffin every week with these add-ins!
