Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Muffins

Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Muffins are the perfect #glutenfree breakfast treat on the go #healthy #recipes #pumpkin

 

Gluten free baking has always felt a bit outside-my-wheelhouse to me so I have to admit, I was shocked when these Pumpkin Muffins came out of the oven. They’re just the right texture- like an oaty pumpkin bread- just the right sweetness (especially when you hit those little chunks of brown sugar I didn’t mix well!), and most importantly brimming with spicy fall pumpkin-ness! Add to that the protein rich Greek Yogurt and, I’ll be honest, this recipe coming out this good was probably a deliciously happy accident!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Mini Cupcakes that you can make in the #blender and are actually good for you too! #glutenfree #healthy #recipes #baking

Before I tell you all about my gluten free baking woes and triumphs, I have to start by telling you my favorite thing about this recipe: it’s made in a blender. Seriously! Just dump everything (except the chocolate chips) in a blender, whirl it up for about 30 seconds, stir in the chocolate yums and you’re ready to bake. No creaming sugar and butter, no gentle folding, just pour, whirl, and you’re oven ready.
