I didn’t believe these delicious Pumpkin Streusel Muffins were gluten-free when I first tried them- they are so good! I love how they’re naturally sweetened and easy to make too.
My whole family, including the kids, love this recipe for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Streusel Muffins!
I’ve been gluten-free for 2 weeks now and I really think I can do this new lifestyle.
Why am I going gluten-free? I want to be healthier. I’m sick and tired of being tired. I’m still dealing with hypothyroidism and a gluten-free diet can help. Plus after reading the book Wheat Belly, it just makes sense. Our wheat is so genetically modified nowadays it’s almost scary.
My biggest fear with gluten-free living was not being able to bake. Baking is one of my passions and I would be so sad to give that up. Luckily, I don’t have to, because there are gluten-free flour substitutes and lots of amazing recipes.
Nate’s been doing gluten-free with me and next, we’re going to switch over the kids. I’ve already been cooking gluten-free meals the past two weeks, but still packing regular sandwiches and snacks for the kids’ lunches at school. This week, my goal has been to make homemade gluten-free bread (done!) and gluten-free snacks.
After a google search, I found a recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Muffins and knew it would be a perfect gluten-free snack for the whole family. I modified the recipe somewhat to fit the ingredients I had on hand and to add a little more flavor (I can’t get enough of pumpkin spices!)
And thus I introduce you to Gluten Free Pumpkin Streusel Muffins:
These Gluten-Free Pumpkin Streusel Muffins are amazing.
They’re light and flavorful. Perfectly spiced and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and honey. There’s pumpkin. What’s not to love?
Grab a gluten-free pumpkin streusel muffin when you’re running out the door without breakfast. Pack a muffin for a morning or afternoon snack. Send them along with the kids to school or use as an after-school snack. Your family will love them!
Hint: you can make these muffins without the streusel too. (They’re a little less messy for little hands.)
I’m telling you, gluten-free isn’t so bad.Print
