Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

Fall is my absolutely FAVORITE time of year!  I absolutely adore the nice warm days, the cool evenings, the gorgeous deep blue skies.  And then of course, there are all the luscious scents and flavors.  There’s really something magical that happens when you combine cinnamon and pumpkin.  Am I right?  Who’s with me?

This recipe hits all the hot buttons!  Cinnamon, pumpkin, chocolate!  Whoah!  Did someone say chocolate?!  Yummy!!!

The best part is that they are also very healthy and could be used with a protein shake as a great grab-and-go breakfast!  No, they are not gluten free, however, you could absolutely substitute the spelt flour for a gluten free alternative.  When I make them again, I will use almond flour.  I will definitely need to adjust the amount of liquid used, but they should absolutely work out just fine.  Stay tuned, I’ll come back to update this post with the information.

If you get to it before I do, please make sure you come back and leave me some comments on how they turned out and what you used to make them gluten free.

Bon Appetit!
