Almond flour pumpkin muffins for a breakfast treat

I’d say you quickly mix the batter for these almond flour pumpkin muffins if you get up half an hour earlier in the morning. And spoil yourself with freshly baked muffins for your breakfast.

Because you don’t need fancy items for the ingredients, nor do you need particular equipment to make the muffins.

And they are so easy and quick to make. Just five minutes to mix the ingredients and 20 minutes to bake.

Honestly, they will be ready by the time you brew your morning coffee or tea. 

As the title says, the muffins use almond flour/ ground almond and pumpkin puree as their key ingredients. 

The two marry well in creating moist muffins with nutty texture and flavor. And with a little bit of ground spice added, the muffins are divine to enjoy in the morning.

Easy to substitute Ingredients

Now, let’s get back to our almond pumpkin muffins.

At a glance, there are nine ingredients plus one optional to make these almond flour and pumpkin muffins.

You will need almond flour, pumpkin puree, golden syrup, oil, eggs, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. The optional is nuts and/or dried fruits.

When it comes to almond flour, you can use either shop-bought almond meal/ ground almonds from the baking aisle. Or, you can grind the almonds yourself using a food processor.

If you do the latter, ensure you soak the almonds and peel their husks before grinding them in the food processor. 

Beware that the texture of the almonds will be slightly grittier than the shop-bought almond flour. 

As for the pumpkin puree, you can use canned pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin puree. You can steam and puree the pumpkin from scratch if you can.

Although I suggest you use honey if you do not have golden syrup, light corn syrup should be another good substitute.

And for the spices, ideally, you use pumpkin pie spice powder. But don’t fret if you don’t have it. The cinnamon powder will make your muffins equally toothsome.

You don’t need to put nuts or dried fruits on top of the muffins. But I personally find them adding extra crunchiness and deliciousness.

You can choose whichever nuts and/ or fruits you like. I would usually go for almonds, walnuts, or pecans. And for the fruits, I tend to choose sultanas, dried cranberries, or raisins.

Simple and quick methods

As mentioned above, you don’t need fancy equipment. And it doesn’t take time to make these almond and pumpkin muffins.

You only need a few mixing bowls, a wooden spoon, a hand whisk or handheld mixer, muffin tins, and muffin cases.

All you have to do is, mix the wet ingredients in a bowl and stir the dry ingredients in another bowl. Then mix the two mixtures together until they are thoroughly combined.

Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake them for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 338°F/ 170°C or gas 4. Or until they are firm to the touch.

How to store your almond flour pumpkin muffins

Your muffins keep well at room temperature for about 3-4 days if you store them in a tight-lidded food container.

If you like, you can bake them in bulk and freeze them. They freeze well for up to 6 weeks. 

Take them out of the freezer and leave them in the refrigerator overnight the night before you plan to have them. And make sure you eat them within a few days, and you must not refreeze them once they are thawed.
