YES! I said, sugar free pumpkin muffins.
Sugar Free Pumpkin Muffins
And I should mention that by no sugar I mean none…nada…not even honey or maple syrup. Yes, I’m serious. No, these don’t have any coconut sugar either. These muffins are sweetened with dates so they truly are free of sweeteners, but they are still full of FLAVOR.
6 SIMPLE Ingredients = Easy Pumpkin Muffins
Now, let me go ahead and take it one step further. These flourless muffins only have 6 ingredients. Yes I said SIX and that includes everything. It’s not one of those 5 ingredient recipes with 5 main ingredients PLUS salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. It’s literally 6 ingredients in your food processor.
- Baking Soda
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
And this is totally and completely 100% optional, but you can top them with chocolate chips. I usually throw chocolate chips on about half of my batch. Then I just make sure some sans chocolate ones get saved for baby….but honestly, I don’t have to ask my husband twice to save those back 😉
Healthy Pumpkin Muffins for Baby
Because they are sugarless, they are a perfect muffin for babies, toddlers, or kids. My one year old LOVES them. You may notice from the picture that I couldn’t even get my phone ready for a picture quick enough to see him with more than crumbs. Plus, if your little one (or you) have any food allergies they are also gluten free and dairy free.
We have been eating these flourless pumpkin muffins for breakfast the past few days, and since they are made with oats they are basically equivalent to oatmeal with a little pumpkin, egg, and date mixed in.
