Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 12 muffins


  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 cup 100% pure pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 2 cups gluten free oat flour*
  • ½ cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • sprinkle of nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips I love this brand!


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with liners and spray the liners with coconut oil or cooking spray so that the muffins come out easily.
  • 2. Add the wet ingredients to a large bowl: pumpkin, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  • 3. Add the dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl. Whisk together until just incorporated, and add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix until just combined, careful not to over mix. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • 4. Pour batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan. I used a cookie scoop to portion them all evenly. Sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top of each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • 5. Transfer to a cooling rack, and let cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze. 


*You can buy oat flour or make your own by pulsing old fashioned oats in the food processor.
