Apple Pumpkin Muffins #Glutenfree #Vegan #Recipe

Nothing says Autumn like Apples & Pumpkins.  Get the best of both in this surprisingly fluffy & delicious Apple Pumpkin Muffin recipe.  Oh, and did I mention it's also gluten-free & vegan!

Apple Pumpkin Muffins
Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup of oil (I used a combination of Coconut Oil & Red Palm Oil)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup Non-Dairy Milk (I used Hemp Milk)
  • 3 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup Gluten-free All-Purpose flour (my go-to is Cloud 9's baking mix)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum (could be omitted if you desire)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 tsp Ground Flax (optional)
  • 1/3 cup Hemp Hearts (optional)
  • 1 cup Pumpkin puree (not pie filling. I used my own homemade pumpkin sauce)
  • 1 1/2 cup Apple Sauce (again, my homemade stuff was perfect)
  • 1 cup Raisins (or substitute nuts, chocolate chips or whatever else you like)
Instructions: 
Recipe makes 24 muffins.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two muffin tins with muffin liners.  If you are using a hard oil like coconut oil or butter, make sure to melt it first. Tip: I use my preheating oven to melt my oil while I get the rest of the ingredients together.

Mix all your wet ingredients and sugar together in a large bowl. That would be your oil, sugar, maple syrup, milk, vanilla and apple & pumpkin sauces.  In a separate bowl sift together all your dry ingredients except the raisins. Then mix your dry into your wet until just mixed.  Then stir in your raisins ( or whatever you are using) until evenly distributed in your batter.

Then fill your muffin cups about 2/3 of the way full and pop into the oven for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Mine took exactly 20 minutes to bake so just keep an eye on them.  Let cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

These Apple Pumpkin Muffins are a cinch to make and taste incredible.  They are moist and fluffy and no one would ever guess they were gluten-free & vegan.  These muffins are kid approved and by avoiding nut-milks they are a perfect addition to your kid's lunch box.

Now off to stand guard by my muffins...not sure that they will last until tomorrow in this house!
