How To Make Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- Mix dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients; coconut oil, eggs, and pumpkin puree in a separate bowl.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine.
- Gently fold in the walnuts.
- Pour the batter into a lined muffin tray and sprinkle with additional nuts.
- Or use the autumn-themed muffin tray coated with olive oil or coconut oil.
- Bake until the muffins are golden.
Note: The batter will be very thick. Almond flour muffins do not rise like traditional grain flour muffins so pack your molds or muffin pans to the brim.
How To Store Pumpkin Chai Muffins
Store leftover muffins in an airtight container on the counter for a few days. These muffins can also be stored frozen for a few months.
- Store almond flour in the fridge so it does not go rancid.
- Leftover pumpkin puree can be kept in the fridge or frozen.
- If using a specially shaped mold make sure to grease the insides of the muffin cavity so the muffins don’t stick.
Can I use regular flour instead of almond flour?
No, if regular all purpose flour can not be substituted for almond flour.
Can I use granulated sugar instead of the allulose and monkfruit sweetner?
I have not tested this recipe with traditional white sugar so I would not suggest you use regular sugar.
