Grainless Pumpkin Muffins

This muffin recipe is terrific for the holidays.  Bake them for your party guests or wrap them up for a nice holiday gift.  Make sure you include the recipe because people will not believe that it has no sugar or flour!  This is a definite “kid approved” recipe as well which makes them a nice addition to a lunchbox.  The key is the spice mixture – it makes it taste just like pumpkin pie.

Advanced Plan – Makes about 8 large muffins or 16 small muffins


1/2 can pure pumpkin puree (7.5 ounces) – no sugar
2 organic eggs
1/4 teaspoon pure stevia extract (the pure steviosices/concentrated kind) or to taste – you can also use spoonable stevia or liquid stevia but you will need more.
4 tablespoons organic butter, melted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

CORE PLAN OPTION:  handful or two of raisins or chopped dates

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line a muffin pan with non-bleached paper liners or silicone muffin cups.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT almond four and walnuts with a hand mixer until well mixed.  Stir in the almond flour and walnuts until incorporated.  Batter will be very thick.  Spoon batter into muffin cups and try to smooth the tops as much as possible.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. Hi – this looks delicious! How many walnuts? It just says, “1/2 finely chopped walnuts.” Thanks! Can’t wait to make them this weekend!

  2. Hello 🙂
    I’m planning to make these and take to my Chiropractor’s Dessert night talk. I had to buy the packets of stevia , because my store did not have the concentrated drops. Can you tell me how many packets or teaspoons i would use? 🙂 I’m having a hard time finding it! Thanks!
    I also have Coconut Palm Sugar. Can this be used? If so, how much?
    Thanks for your help! 🙂
