Paleo Pumpkin muffins

Ingredients:

(Makes 12 muffins)

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with liners.

In a  bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Stir so everything is combined.

In a separate bowl, add your canned pumpkin, melted coconut oil (or butter), eggs, vanilla, and honey. Stir until everything is evenly mixed together.

Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing until smooth.

Spoon batter into muffin liners. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds over each muffin.

Bake for  24-26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Let muffins cool for a few minutes before serving.

*Muffins are best when stored in the refrigerator after 24 hours. I also love freezing them!
