Grain Free & Flourless Pumpkin Muffins

Grain Free & Flourless Pumpkin Muffins

It’s finally October and this means we can use pumpkin spice to no end!

Who else is SO excited?

October is my absolute favorite month out of the year. The cool weather (boot and sweater weather), pumpkin picking, apple picking, cider donuts … Halloween?! Hocus Pocus! It’s just truly the best. And having a kid makes the season that much more special and makes you feel less like a weirdo when you swoon over all the things!

The topping on your spiced latte/pumpkin pie/pumpkin flavored everything is this grain and gluten free, completely flourless for that matter, pumpkin muffin.

Of course I topped these suckers off with some allergy friendly mini chocolate chips.
