Paleo Pumpkin-Walnut Muffins

I’m feeling so much better this morning. So good, in fact, I did a little baking!

I had some canned pumpkin in the refrigerator that needed to be used up sooner than later, so I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin-Walnut Muffins, which are Paleo-friendly and gluten-free”¦ oh, and super delicious.

These muffins smelled incredible while they were baking””just like warm pumpkin pie. They turned out smooth, soft, light, and fluffy with a pumpkin spice and slightly nutty flavor. The walnuts add a nice crunch and chew to each bite. Mmm!

    1. @Lyn: I freeze them all the time as I make huge batches for my kids to grab as “on the go breakfasts” before school. Just double bag them in a ziploc bag and make sure to get the air out.

  1. Love these ! Make them all the time! I play around with the ingredients: use different nuts, add a grated carrot or apple. use what i have on hand 🙂
