Simple Pumpkin Muffin Recipe (gluten free, Paleo and GAPs friendly)

Last week I posted about my journey through the GAPs diet  – gut healing protocol – and why I decided to go for it. It has been 3 weeks now of just soups, broth, fermented veggies, and yogurt. This week I have finally started introducing some healthy flours, such as coconut and a bit of almond flour. Today I’m excited to share a pumpkin muffin recipe I think you are going to love.

Pumpkin has been my go-to thickener for pancakes and baking so far. I have been going through 1-4 cans per week as I use it for almost everything. When you only have a short list of food you can eat, you get creative 😉

Today I was in the mood for a yummy snack to go with my mint tea and decided to put together these simple delishhh muffins.  They were super simple to make as I didn’t need too many ingredients.

You can totally substitute pumpkin puree with baked butternut squash or sweet potato if you wish. I haven’t personally used it so I cannot guarantee the results, but I heard that they work amazingly well as well.
