Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

With Labor Day Weekend complete and the kids back in school, I am so ready to trade out bathing suits and flip flops for cozy sweaters and tall riding boots. Fall is my favorite season of the year but in recent years, it seems to only last a mere 2 weeks when the humidity finally breaks around Halloween.

Thankfully, it’s been feeling a bit like fall today with fabulously cool temperatures and so we’re doing all the fall things! Turkey chili is bubbling in the crockpot, and gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins just came out of the oven. What more do you need in life?!

These muffins are pretty dense but moist (*sigh* I know, but how else can I describe it?) I received high marks from my 8 year old on the balance of spices, but feel free to play around here on amounts (or maybe add nutmeg!)

Preheat oven to 350


  • 1 can 100% pumpkin puree

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
