Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

Hey guys!  Today I want to share a recipe with you that I was recently introduced to.  Someone brought the most amazing pumpkin muffins to work a couple of weeks ago and I just had to have the recipe!  I was actually shocked to find out that they were gluten free.  These were seriously the best pumpkin muffins I have ever had!  The recipe can be changed to make them where they’re not gluten free, but I promise you won’t know the difference.  I made these last night, so I could share them with you.  I’m warning you it’s hard not to eat more than one!  more “Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins”

I was craving blueberry muffins yesterday, and not the boxed kind.  I wanted real, homemade, made from scratch muffins.  So, I made some.  This recipe is so simple and these muffins were delicious!  They were moist and were full of blueberry flavor.  It took me 10 minutes to prep them, and 30 minutes to bake.  I could hardly wait until they were cool to eat.  They made my house smell heavenly!

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.  You can use liners if you want, but spray those too.

With the mixer on low speed, add in half of the flour mixture.  Then add in a ½ cup of milk and the rest of the flour mixture.

Once this is combined, use a spatula to fold in 2 cups of blueberries.  Do this gently so you don’t break them. ( I used frozen, but thawed them first.  You can use fresh too.)

Fill the muffins to the top in the muffin tin.  I used an ice cream scoop to fill mine.  Then sprinkle them with sugar.

Healthy Low Calorie Strawberry Muffins

I was in a baking mood today.  I searched through the pantry deciding what to bake.  But, after looking at ingredients for cookies and cakes, I decided that I didn’t want to make something bad for me because I would probably just eat all of it!  So, I whipped up a batch of my favorite healthy strawberry muffins.  These muffins are only 67 calories each!

Healthy Strawberry Oat Muffins


They are perfect for breakfast, dessert, or just a snack.  I love these muffins because they are so quick and easy to make, and don’t require a lot of ingredients.  They are also very versatile because you can pretty much add any fruit that you want.

muffins (4)

What you need: 1 ¼ cups of oat flour, ¼ cup light brown sugar, 6 packets of stevia, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 egg white, ½ cup unsweetened applesauce, 1 cup of frozen or fresh strawberries.

I started with the brown sugar and then I added the of oat flour.  I made my own by taking Quaker Oats and putting them in a food processor.

Then I added the Stevia and Chia seeds.

muffins (8)

After combining all of the dry ingredients, I added the egg white and the unsweetened applesauce.

muffins (9)

Lastly, I gently stirred in the strawberries.  I used frozen today because that’s what I had, but you can use fresh if you want.  If you use frozen, make sure to drain all of the juice off before adding them.

muffins (10)

Then I sprayed a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and filled each cup about half way full.  This recipe makes 10 muffins.

muffins (11)

I baked them in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.

I have made these before with blueberries and peaches and they were just as good!
