Why this Recipe Works

If you’re as crazy for pumpkin as we are, you NEED this muffin recipe in your life.

  • Tastes like pumpkin pie baked into moist muffins.
  • Sweetened with monk fruit
  • Keto, low carb and gluten free recipe!

Unlike some gluten free and keto pumpkin muffins I’ve tried, these stay soft and moist even a few days later. The almond flour makes a perfect swap for regular flour to give these muffins their structure.

You’ll love biting into a freshly baked muffin with your morning coffee–and knowing it has no added sugars or gluten!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients for gluten free pumpkin muffin recipe.

Pumpkin puree. Make sure to use pure pumpkin. Not pumpkin pie mix!

Pumpkin pie spice. This is a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices commonly used in the classic pie. I use this pumpkin spice recipe.

Almond flour. Not to be confused with almond meal. I love baking with Bob’s Red Mill Superfine Almond Flour.

Monk fruit sweetener. You’ll need the granulated version of this natural sugar substitute to make these pumpkin muffins.

Tips and Tricks

  • Cinnamon sugar topping. Dust the tops of the baked muffins with a blend of 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of granulated monkfruit.
  • Chocolate drizzle. Melt a bar of sugar free dark chocolate to drizzle over the pumpkin muffins before serving for more indulgence.
  • Pecan variation. Press a few crushed pecan pieces into the tops of muffins before baking for a nutty twist.
  • Chilled muffins. These taste delicious served cold too. Just like pumpkin pie!

Recipe FAQs

How can I tell when pumpkin muffins are done?

These pumpkin muffins are done baking when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

How do you store these?

You can store these in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, keep them in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. You can serve the muffins cold (my favorite) or let them come to room temperature if preferred.

Can this recipe be made as mini muffins?

To make mini muffins, divide the batter into a greased miniature muffin tin. Mini gluten free pumpkin muffins will need less cooking time, so keep an eye on them as they bake.

What is in pumpkin pie spice?

Pumpkin Pie Spice contains cinnamon, cloves, all spice, nutmeg and ginger. It’s used to spice pumpkin pies and all kinds of other pumpkin recipes, like this one!

Are these muffins keto?

Yes, these muffins are very low in net carbs! They’re suitable for most folks with a keto diet.
