Gluten-free pumpkin muffins are a good way to start off the day. Pumpkin muffins are a type of gluten-free bread and go great with many, many foods… especially breakfast “fixin’s.”
And, even better, this recipe is easy to make. They can be ready in about 30 minutes and will reward you and your family with their delicate aroma and delicious pumpkin-y flavor.
Unfortunately, they won’t last very long. So, be sure to make plenty… I turned my husband loose on the muffins you see in the picture above and they all vanished in about 15 minutes… And, he’s not a magician!
He says that they are fabulous with a pat of rich, creamery butter melted into each bite.

Most people don’t realize that pumpkins are loaded with Vitamin A – over 100% of the daily, FDA-recommended value is in just a half-cup serving — plus good amounts of Vitamins C and E, iron and fiber, to name a few of its other benefits. This low-carb, low-fat nutritional powerhouse vegetable is a natural to combine with a low glycemic sweetener like agave nectar.
I made a batch of these gluten-free pumpkin muffins with agave this week. And, I’m glad I did!
They rose well and have a smooth, attractive crust. And, they hold their texture when broken open, not crumbling apart like some muffins do.
