Truly Healthy and Delicious Pumpkin Muffins- Grain free, dairy free, and (almost) sugar free

After the gluten dairy muffins of last week, I decided to make some that I could truly eat without guilt. These muffins were inspired by a recipe on http://www.elanaspantry.com/, a health-conscious food blog I love. They are incredibly protein rich, barely sweetened (and only with stevia and coconut sugar), have no grains at all (just coconut flour), and amazingly end up being irresistible. I was a little surprised myself, but everyone in my family gobbled this batch up right away. This is a deeply nourishing recipe and they are best eaten the day of. The following recipe is only for 6 large muffins. This recipe makes a spicy muffin, cinnamon and ginger are both healing spices and will delight your taste buds in these indulgent muffins.

3 eggs
1/3 cup pumpkin purée (canned is easier, fresh is healthier, both will work)
2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon ginger
1/4 coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon stevia
2 tablespoons coconut oil

Mix coconut flour, baking soda, and spices.

In a separate bowl lightly beat the eggs, add the pumpkin puree, sunflower seed butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and stevia.

Fold together the two mixtures. Place in greased muffin tins.

Cook 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
