Pumpkin spice is one of my favourite flavours. It totally reminds me of fall.

But who wants to wait until fall to enjoy pumpkin?! Not this girl.

My boys enjoy a smoothie after school most days, it’s their favourite after-school snack. I love that they are getting healthy ingredients that fill them up until dinnertime. One of their favourite smoothies that I make them is pumpkin pie. It has half a can of real pureed pumpkin in it along with some other yummy ingredients.

I was wondering what I could do with the other half of the can of pumpkin puree?! These muffins were the first thing that popped in my head.

We love muffins in our house, especially my boys. They are perfect for their school lunches or a quick snack when we’re on the run.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting a lot with coconut flour. We LOVE the taste of coconut flour because it has a natural sweetness to it. But it’s tricky to bake with, you have to have just the right amount of liquid for it to work. I also wanted to cut down on the amount of maple syrup in this recipe. I personally feel it doesn’t need that much sugar.

These Paleo Pumpkin Muffins are very moist and they smell amazing! And who doesn’t love a muffin recipe you can whip up in ONE bowl?! Less clean up for this mom.
