Muffin freezing tip: In my experience, I have found that muffins freeze much better when they are baked without liners. Just be sure to grease your muffin tin super well so they are easy to remove!

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins: Method 

This recipe is so {SO} easy to whip up! Here are a couple of notes to help you on your muffin-making journey.

Melt the coconut oil. Usually the very first thing I do when making this recipe is melt the coconut oil. Put it in a little glass bowl and warm it in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Then it’ll be all set when it’s time to add it to the wet ingredients.

Let the mixture set. After you’ve mixed all the ingredients the coconut flour needs some time to soak up the moisture. Let the batter sit on the counter for 5 minutes while you do the dishes. You’ll get perfect muffins and have a clean kitchen! Win win! 😉

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins: Substitutions 

Paleo baking is super exact and not very forgiving! Please do not alter the amount or type of flour in this recipe! Here are a few substitutions that would work well!

Coconut Sugar. Any granulated sugar works well in this recipe. Just be sure it complies with your dietary needs.

Coconut oil. Grass-fed butter or ghee are perfect substitutes for coconut oil!
