Creamy Pumpkin Banana Raisin Muffins (gluten-free!)

creamy pumpkin muffins

Despite attempts to avoid cooking at all costs in the past, I have succumbed to this new passion of mine…fervently!!

There’s something addicting to whipping up a new concoction in the kitchen with my own hands, and making it into brilliant deliciousness (with just the occasional failure, right!?).

This was one of my first recipes I tweaked and mastered over the course of the past year, inspired as a pre- or post-workout snack in between practices for my husband.

If you’re in a rush, it’s perfect to grab with a cup of coffee to go in the morning, too!

Here is the magic recipe…

Creamy Pumpkin Banana Raisin Muffins
*Gluten-free, grain-free

1 1/2 c pumpkin, mashed (from can or bake a pumpkin & scoop out flesh)
2 bananas, mashed
3/4 c raisins
2 eggs
1/2 c almond butter
1/4 c butter (or olive oil or coconut oil)
1/4 c organic maple syrup (or honey or agave)
3/4 c almond flour
1/3 c coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp pumpkin spice (or about 1-2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp ginger)
1/2 tbsp vanilla

*Set oven @ 350 degrees
*Blend all wet ingredients: pumpkin, bananas, almond butter, butter, maple syrup, eggs
*Add dry ingredients and blend until smooth
*Stir in raisins at the end
*Spoon in muffin tin (optional: add coconut flakes on top)

    • Great question. Here’s the nutrient profile per muffin based on making 24 muffins:

      115.2 calories
      8.3 g fat
      9.3 carbs
      1.4 g fiber
      2.5 g protein

      Though they aren’t high in calories per muffin, to me, it’s more important that they provide real nourishment, healthy fats, and not too much added sugar! :)
