Pumpkin Spice Muffins – Gluten-Free

4 eggs
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup honey
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups mashed, cooked pumpkin (or 15-oz. can of pumpkin)
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup white bean flour
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. Allspice
1 t. sea salt
1-2 cups extras (chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, etc.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat eggs, honey, oil, applesauce, and pumpkin well.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Stir in “extras”.  Fill paper-lined or greased muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until done.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen muffins.

** You can use a little coffee mill (the kind you can buy that grinds up coffee beans) to grind up your flours for this recipe.  I just use brown rice to grind up for the brown rice flour, old fashioned oats for the oat flour, and dry white beans for the white bean flour.  Anyone can do this!  It is very easy and is a wonderful way to make alternate options of flours.

  1. My daughter and I are on a gluten free diet as well. These muffins look so good! One thing you need to be sure that your oats are certified gluten free. Regular rolled oats are cross-contaminated.
    1. Hi Karen, Yes thank you for mentioning this. Do you have to find oats that say "gluten free" on the package then? Does it make a different, too, as to your reasons for going gluten free - if you are just trying to avoid gluten - or if you have a severe reaction to gluten and need to totally avoid anything that has even touched something with gluten (such as those with celiac)? My parents are on a gluten free, dairy free (except hard cheese), and sugar free diet. I'm not sure about their level of restriction. I guess I better ask if I want to make these muffins while they are here! Thanks for the heads up!
      1. You do have to find packaging that states that it is gluten free. Usually in the section with all the other gluten free flours. I am not celiac, and I have found that I cannot eat the regular rolled oats. Steel cut oats are processed differently and I think they are okay to eat, but I have not tried them yet. Bob's Red Mill packages certified gluten free oats. We are gluten free because of allergic reaction. If one is on a GF diet just for the sake of avoiding gluten, and not because of allergy, then I would guess that cross-contamination wouldn't be much of an issue. :)
