Easy Paleo Gluten-Free Vegetarian Pumpkin Breakfast Muffins


  1. 1/2 cup coconut flour
    2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (if you can't find this, a mix of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger spices will do the trick)
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 cup pumpkin puree
    1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
    6 eggs
    2 teaspoons organic vanilla
    1/4 cup raw honey, melted

  3. Divide the batter between muffin pans, and sprinkle with walnuts.
  4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until done.
