Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 Tablespoons ground flax or chia seed
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash each nutmeg and cardamon to taste
  • 3 medium bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice (almond, coconut, etc.)
  • 2 Tablespoons mild olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Vanilla creme Stevia to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with muffin papers and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, ground flax seed, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and cardamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas until very well mashed and almost liquid. Stir in the pumpkin, non-dairy milk, olive oil, vanilla, and Stevia drops and mix well.
  • Add the coconut flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and stir very well.
  • Spoon the thick batter into the prepared muffin cups to the brim. Gently smooth the tops of the batter if you like, but don't press the batter into the cups.
  • Bake for 30 minutes*. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then move the muffins onto a cooling rack. Allow the muffins to cool completely before removing them from the muffin papers (this is important or they will stick to the papers).
  • Store these in a sealed container in the fridge. These muffins also freeze well.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

I used a stoneware muffin pan. If you are using a metal muffin pan, they may take a little less time to bakeĀ
