Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small of medium mixing bowl
  • whisk or fork
  • cupcake or muffin tin
  • Cupcake liners
  • Optional ice cream scooper or ½ cup measuring cup for even distribution of muffin mix

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ¾ Cup Pamela's Gluten Free Baking Mix If you cannot find the mix use: 1 ¾ cup (your favorite) flour, 1 tsp baking soda & 2 tsp baking powder.
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Cup Sugar We used Trader Joe's coconut sugar in place of refined sugar.
  • ½ cup brown sugar or 1-2 tbs blackstrap molasses for more nuturition & less sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can pumpkin puree (be sure to get pure pumpkin puree, 15 oz.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut oil, ghee or clarified butter, melted
  • 1 bag mini- chocolate chips Optional (also you may use any size chocolate chip the mini's are fun with kids.)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. IF you are baking with chocolate chips preheat the oven to 350 instead & cook a little longer (25 minutes).
  • Combine dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients), make a well in the center of the bowl & set aside.
  • Combine wet ingredients & sugar.
  • Gently combine wet & dry mixtures. Pour the wet mixture into the large bowl with the dry mixture. Do not overmix.
  • Use an ice cream scooper for even distrubtiuon of the mix (the "old fashioned" kind with the metal part that scrapes out the excess mixture in the scoop) or ½ cup measuring cup (not as fun if the kids are helping).
  • Bake 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Wait about 5 minutes (it won't be easy!) for the muffins to cool and then transfer to cooling racks.

Notes

Pamela's baking mix includes baking powder as well and makes these muffins really light and fluffy.
