    I went into fall thinking that I would share a couple of new pumpkin recipes, but not go too crazy.

    Fast forward a couple of weeks and your girl is on a roll over here with pumpkin and fall everything. And the insane part is that I’m not even someone who craves pumpkin spice lattes and wearing my boots again. I love summer and sweating my tush off in the 100 degree weather.

    But at the same time, I’m not one to say no to a muffin or bread or cookie of any kind, so allow me to introduce the newest pumpkin recipe…

    Paleo Pumpkin MINI MUFFINS!

    I don’t know what I love about these more. The fact that they are made with 8 ingredients total or that Ezra pretty much ate the entire batch of these bad boys.

    Seeing how much he loves baked goods seriously warms my heart. But at the same time I am not getting too used to him loving my cooking and baking because I heard it can get quite challenging to feed your bubbas when toddler time is here.

    These cutie pumpkin muffins are adult and kid-friendly. You can pair a few with some nut butter for an easy snack for yourself. Or slice up some into smaller pieces to feed to the bubs in your lives. Ezra loved these with some cashew butter (code RACHL for free shipping in this nut butter!)

    But no matter who is eating these and how they are eating them, I have a feeling they will love them!

    Oh and for anyone craving even more fall recipes to bake this season (or really whenever), here are my go-to pumpkin eats!

    I want to make these, but I don’t do well with flax seed. Any suggestions on what to substitute?

      i haven’t tried anything else but maybe ground chia??

    Can you please please please test a coconut flour version!? I’d be so grateful!

      will certainly try to soon!!

    Been waiting for these but my baby is allergic to egg. So sorry to even ask about changing your recipe but do you think a flax egg would work in this?

    • Reply Rachel October 16, 2019 at 4:44 pm

      i think that would be perfect!!

    Just made this with pureed sweet potato and made in a loaf pan! Super dense but I like it! Perfect because its really not that sweet but I am trying to adjust my taste buds to less sweetness so this is perfect! Also love the pack of flax seed goodness it punches! So much nutrients in each bite 🙂

    Love these muffins and super easy to add fun mix-ins to the batter! I tried coconut, raisin/pumpkin seed, tahini, and chocolate chunk. The raisin version was my fav.

    My 2 year old loved these! I didn’t have any applesauce so I substituted a mashed banana and I also didn’t have any tapioca or arrowroot flour so I substituted cornflour but only one tablespoon instead of two. Texture turned out great. Will definitely make again.
