Gluten-Free Perfect Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Perfect Pumpkin Muffins (gluten free)

How could I possibly let Halloween slip by without sharing a pumpkin-inspired recipe?! Though it’s coming a little late, this fall-fantastic recipe is fitting for the season and sure to make your eyes and tummy equally happy.

Quick note: make sure that if you are making this recipe gluten-free (like I did), that you use baking flour (you’ll see other options like GF all-purpose/multipurpose flour) and have xantham gum on hand!

Now, without further adieu, my pumpkin muffin recipe with an optional sugar glaze.

Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

I describe myself as a cook, not a baker. The science of baking soda is lost on me… But I’m making an attempt to break into the world of baking, one little baby step at a time….

Step 1: Buy baking supplies. (muffin tin, bread tin, mixing bowl, mixing spoon)
Step 2: Buy baking essentials. (baking sugar, baking powder and soda, flour, xanthan gum-important ingredient for gluten-free baking, vegetable oil, pam spray, etc.)
Step 3: Foster intent to bake.
Step 4: Tell other people I plan to bake, creating accountability for baking.
Step 5: Suck it up; bake something.

These muffins were insanely easy to make (thank goodness). My only complaint is that the recipe only makes about 9 muffins… Don’t get me wrong, those 9 muffins were scrumptious, but I feel like baked goods are meant to be shared in mass quantities!
