Maple Pumpkin Pecan Muffins
Yield: 12 muffins
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 1⁄3 cup oat flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger (or 2 T pumpkin pie spice), plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup grade B maple syrup
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1⁄4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
- 1⁄4 cup raw pecans, chopped, for topping
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray the cups of a standard 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick spray and dust with oat flour, or use muffin liners.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a large bowl and whisk, briefly whisk together all dry ingredients.
- Add to the bowl the pumpkin, coconut oil, and maple syrup and mix to combine so there are no flour streaks visible.
- Add the eggs and whisk for 10 seconds more to combine.
- Transfer the batter evenly into the muffin cups. I like to use an ice cream scoop for this.
- Distribute the chopped pecans evenly over the tops of the muffins.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until a cake tester comes out just clean.
- Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
