Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

Made with rice flour this gluten free pumpkin muffins recipe is perfect for fall! Have it as a snack on the go, or warmed with butter at breakfast.

I did a lot of baking last week. Hence the Gluten Free Banana Bread recipe I shared on Friday. I like to bake in big batches – and make just one big kitchen mess instead of lots of little ones. Anyway, since it’s now officially fall – and all things pumpkin abound – I thought it would be fun to whip up some gluten free pumpkin muffins. You know while I was messing up the kitchen anyway.

HOT TIP: For easy gluten free baking, I prefer to use white rice flour and tapioca starch mixed to about 70/30 or 75/25 ratio. It just seems to work well.

The good news is even the kids in our house who don’t need to be gluten free loved these pumpkin muffins.

Are you a pumpkin person? Do you love a good pumpkin spice latte? Or would you rather eat/drink anything but pumpkin?

I'd love it if you'd share:

    I’ll be honest and say I looove me some gluten… but these look SO good and festive! Love their bright orange color! And kids don’t lie, so if yours loved them, then I’ll for sure have to try them out! Beautifully done Shannon!

    This was absolutely deiiclous. This was only my 2nd try at using the bread machine first try did not come out so good. I used agave nectar, 1/3 cup. The bread was sweet and the texture was perfect. I am making it again, this time using molasses, because agave is so expensive. I highly recommend this recipe.
