One-Bowl Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

Enjoy the flavors of the season with these One-Bowl Paleo Pumpkin Muffins! These muffins are grain-free, nut-free, can be made dairy-free and are naturally sweetened.


These muffins are packed with healthy fiber from the pumpkin and coconut flour. Pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse filled with antioxidant vitamins including Vitamin A, C and E. It is also rich in magnesium, copper, zinc and protein. This recipe also uses 2 tablespoons of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. The addition of Collagen Peptides provides gut-healing power while promoting healthy skin, hair and nails.

One-Bowl Paleo Pumpkin Muffins
Makes 12 Muffins

Ingredients

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup grass-fed butter (softened) or palm shortening (for dairy free)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 eggs
3/4 cup coconut flour
2 Tbsp Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp sea salt

Topping
1 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper or silicone liners. *Note: I like to lightly spray my silicone liners with coconut oil. This makes the muffins come out perfectly every time!
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, butter or palm shortening, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and eggs.
3. Add the coconut flour, collagen peptides, baking soda, spices and salt. Stir until well combined. Let sit for 5 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the wet ingredients.
4. Fill lined muffin tins 3/4 full with batter.
5. Mix the coconut sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top of each muffin.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then finish cooling on a cooling rack.


These are perfectly spiced and taste amazing. Perfect for an out the door breakfast or snack option. Slather on some grass-feed butter or ghee, coconut butter, or almond butter for an indulgent treat. These also freeze well, but I doubt you will have leftovers!
