Gluten Free Dairy Free Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin. Pumpkin. Pumpkin.

Are you looking for a great tasting healthy pumpkin muffin to serve to your family? Would you like to have an recipe for a dairy-free, gluten-free pumpkin muffin that you serve a house full of Thanksgiving company?

This is that recipe and I take no credit for it.

I am always buying cookbooks and bought the cookbook Cooking for Isaiah, a gluten free, dairy-free cookbook last week. I’ve been really impressed with what I have tried.

In fact, her recipe for pizza is by far the best one I have made yet. I will post my success with her pizza dough later in the week.

Again, with Canadian Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I would share her recipe for Pumpkin Muffins. I do not know about you, but I am always on the lookout for a quick and easy muffin recipe that I can throw together. And this, is one of the good ones, plus the recipe is dairy and gluten free. What a bonus!

I thank Silvana for sharing this recipe with us all.

  1. I liked that these muffins were a bit denser than usual because of the pumpkin, and the crumble topping is a nice touch. It kind of reminded me of a cinnamon-sugar timbit … I felt like I was indulging myself but didn’t have to feel too guilty because, after all, its only a muffin 🙂

  2. I was really impressed with these muffins. Next time I would add walnuts, flax and chia to add some fibre and crunch to the batter.
    Glad you liked them!

  3. I wonder if you can use brown rice flour vs. white? Do you think that would work the same? Sounds yummy. Thanks!
