These gluten-free pumpkin muffins are so cute and perfect for a festive gathering or an autumnal dessert. We made this recipe using our amazing GF Naturals All Purpose Gluten Free Flour that achieves such a delicious and moist crumb that it's hard to tell they are even gluten-free! If you haven't checked out our all-purpose flour, you definitely should along with the countless other recipes we have on our website for you to try out.
This time of year is so much fun with pumpkin farms and apple picking not to mention fun parties and costumes. Why not have mini pumpkin pies in a cupcake?
You can decorate these with baking sugar, chocolate or white chips. Frost them or leave them plain.
Great for desert or breakfast!
My vote is breakfast...
Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting or Chocolate Chips topping would be great to make for a casual office Thanksgiving party because you don’t have to worry about cutting slices of pie, or just something fun and festive to make with your kids to celebrate the season. Whatever the reason, just promise me you’ll find one to make these muffins!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes
So just to clarify, by BEST EVER, I mean best that I have ever tasted. I know it’s pretty presumptuous of me to title any recipe of mine BEST EVER, and I’m sorry if you make a really good pumpkin muffin as well.
I’m not saying yours isn’t the best, but I can’t really know because I’ve never tasted yours, okay? :)
Moist and delicious Pumpkin Muffins (with optional Cream Cheese Frosting or Chocolate Chips) would be great to make for casual office fall parties because you don’t have to worry about cutting slices of pie, or just something fun and festive to make with your kids to celebrate the season. Whatever the reason, just promise me you’ll find one to make these muffins!
Bring the kids to help you make this delicious treat! Then enjoy the moist warm muffins. No one will know they are gluten free.
Mix eggs, pumpkin puree, sugar, vegetable or canola oil, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer, or a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, until smooth and creamy.
Next, whisk together gluten free flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt then add to the wet ingredients and mix again until smooth.
Let the batter sit for 5 minutes which will give the gluten free flour a chance to soften while it absorbs the liquid in the recipe then scoop 1/4 cup batter into each cup of a 12 cup, paper-lined muffin tin.
Bake for 17-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean
Adding extra baking powder is what give them a little bigger muffin top.
