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.
