Vegan & Gluten-free Pumpkin Muffins

by Brittany on October 5, 2011


I whipped these up yesterday for the sake of celebrating the onset of fall, and was overwhelmed by how awesome they turned out to be! These pumpkin muffins are gluten free, sugar free, vegan, and they taste GREAT. I even added some chocolate chips to a few for Will, and he approved too.

If the boyfriend approves, they must be good :D

Vegan & Gluten-free Pumpkin Muffins


Yield: 10- 12 muffins depending on size

Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup Gluten-free Oats
  • 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 3/4 cups sweetener (I used Stevia, but you can also use sugar or agave nectar)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 15- ounce can of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup water


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, oats, xanthan gum, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

3. Stir in pumpkin puree and water until combined. Pour mix into greased muffin tins until filled just below the top.

5. Bake for 27-30 minutes, depending on size of muffins. When muffins are done cooking, allow to cool for 5 minutes until serving.


You ready for the stats?


I hope now you understand how I’ve justified eating these all day 8)

Yes! and you could probably take out the xanthan gum if you use regular flour

For the pumpkin muffins, do you think you could use splenda as a no-calorie sweetener? Thanks!


Itty Bits of Balance October 7, 2011 at 11:36 am

Splenda would work! Be careful about the sweetness factor though because I personally feel that Splenda is a little bit sweeter than Stevia

I love pumpkin muffin recipes, they always seem to turn out well! Mine were only slightly higher (90 cals) and not vegan/GF ;). Pumpkin NEVER gets old! :)

I have wanted to make these muffins all week- and they are presently in my oven. I didn’t have canned pumpkin on hand, so I made some squash puree from the one I roasted yesterday. I also used just under 1/2 cup brown sugar and a mixture of honey and molassas for the other 1/4 cup sweetener. And I have to say- this dough is the best muffin dough I have EVER tasted. The extra natural sweetness from the squash put them over the top! Can’t wait to taste the finished product, but I’m pretty sure these are going to top the list of the best-tasting muffins I have ever made. And NO added fats for my boyfriend (health issues)! :D Thanks for the amazing recipe! xo

Hi Brittany

I’m a bit confused with Stevia… What’s the brand you’re using ? and is it pure extract or just powder?



Brittany August 2, 2012 at 8:12 am

Hey Annie! It’s called Stevia In The Raw– it’s a powder baking blend

These are great!! I added 1/4c chopped walnuts and made a struesel for the topping (tbsp flour tbsp brown sugar drizzle oil). Excellent! I think next time I’ll try adding some currants too! Thank you!!
