GF Pumpkin Flaxseed Muffins

November 4, 2012

This past week I was craving a festive treat in honor of November; specifically pumpkin, craisins, and walnuts.  So, I decided to put them all together in a gluten free muffin!  The base of my recipe was from The Detoxinista.  I modified to recipe to add flaxseed, craisins, and walnuts.  I also took out the chocolate chips to keep them low on sugar.  These muffins are actually HEALTHY!  They are grain-free, low on sugar, and full of protein!

Pumpkin Flaxseed Muffins with Craisins and Walnuts

Here is what you need….

1 cup almond butter

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I use Trader Joe’s organic pumpkin)

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup honey

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Mix all of these ingredients together in a large bowl, then add and mix in…

1/3 cup craisins

1/4 ground flaxseed

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, till the top of the muffins are golden and slightly cracked.  I know they’ll smell amazing and you’ll want to dig in, but let them cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Happy November!

      Hi Health Without Sacrifice! Thanks for asking! These yield 10-12 muffins, depending on how deep you fill the muffin trays. My batch made 11. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
