Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins Save The Day!
To say my internet being in and out (mostly out) for for the past week has been a pain, would be a HUGE understatement. Seriously, it's one thing to decide to take time off from the internet, but when you need it...UGH, it is frustrating. Hopefully it will get fixed today. They are supposed to send a knowledgeable individual to come and fix the problem. We will see...

In the mean time, I made gluten free pumpkin muffins! Oh my gosh, these totally hit the spot and made my day! I took my dairy free pumpkin muffin recipe and my gluten free zucchini muffin recipe as guides and WOW...

these were moist, chewy, spicy, slightly sweetened with a huge pumpkin flavor!

Max chose mini muffins this round. I love these little bite sized treats! This will be my new go to recipe for this season and I can't wait to make more! 

I sprinkled them with a little extra turbinado sugar for an added sweetness on top since I did not go overboard with sugar in them. I love the sparkly festive and delicious!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins
(22 to 24 mini muffins)

3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
1 cup brown rice flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2/3 cup turbinado sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup egg whites
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 dropper vanilla stevia (or an extra 1/4 cup sugar)
1 TBSP + 1/2 tsp turbinado sugar for topping

Combine the almond milk and cider vinegar in a measuring cup; set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 cup mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a bowl, combine the rice flour through xanthan gum. Mix well. Next add the egg whites, pumpkin, stevia and milk mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a whisk to make sure everything is fully combined. Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups (I made 22 fat ones). Sprinkle each muffin with the remaining turbinado sugar. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Kroger has become our new best friend for internet. It stinks that we are paying for internet and then have to drive to get it! Hopefully this will get fixed today! Happy Wednesday!
