Here's what you need to make this paleo pumpkin muffins recipe:

- pumpkin pie spice
- baking soda
- pumpkin puree
- almond milk yogurt

Grain Free Flours
The combination of almond flour, coconut flour and arrowroot starch provide a moist, fluffy muffin. Although the arrowroot can be eliminated, removing it will change the texture. A great substitute is tapioca flour.
To make these muffins sweet, but low in sugar I used Lakanto's golden monk fruit sweetener. Any granulated sweetener will work as a substitute. Coconut sugar is a great Paleo alternative.
This recipe has not been tested without eggs or with egg replacements. The eggs help bind the ingredients together and cook the muffin batter. If you try an egg free version then please feel free to share the results!
I used my favorite almond milk yogurt for this recipe. However, any type of yogurt would be an acceptable replacement. The yogurt plays a role in the muffin texture and structure.
How to Make Low Carb Paleo Pumpkin Muffins
These easy pumpkin muffins are made in a bowl, baked in the oven and ready to eat in less than an hour. Here's the step by step process:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Next, combine eggs, pumpkin, yogurt and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth.
In a separate bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. This includes the almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, monk fruit, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula. The batter is fairly thick.
Next, scoop the batter into a lined muffin pan. (I like using silicone muffin cups!) This recipe makes 9 regular sized muffins. You can add extra toppings like hemp seeds and cinnamon if you want.
Place the muffins in your oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes.
Lastly, remove the muffins from the oven and cool on a wire cooling rack to room temperature.
These low carb pumpkin muffins are best stored in the fridge up to one week.
