Serves 8 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 60


Dry Ingredients:
1½ cups gluten-free quick oats (+ a bit more for sprinkling on top)
2 tbsp tapioca starch
¼ cup brown rice flour
1½ tsp baking powder (gluten-free!)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice (see notes for alternative)
dash of salt

Wet Ingredients:
¾ cup pumpkin puree
¾ cup maple syrup (or agave, coconut nectar, brown rice syrup, honey / honee, etc.)
½ cup light coconut milk (the kind that comes in a can -- stir it well first)
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses (preferably unsulphured)
1 tbsp lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup raisins (or cranberries, chopped dates, chocolate chips, etc.)
1 cup pumpkin seeds (or chopped pecans) + more for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350F. Oil a 12-cup muffin pan (just 8 of the cups if making 8) and set aside (or use liners or a good non-stick pan instead of oiling).

Process all dry ingredients into a flour in a food processor. Add in wet ingredients and process to combine. Add in your add-ins and pulse a few times to mix them in.

Spoon batter into 8 muffin cups, topping it up until you run out of batter (unless you're doing smaller muffins, in which case divide evenly between the 12 cups). Sprinkle with extra pumpkin seeds & oats.

Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 1 hour (if making 12 smaller muffins, the baking time will decrease, so keep an eye out and test with a skewer until it comes out try to see if they're done). Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Enjoy!
