Pumpkin Walnut Muffins

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had a quiet one but it was good. I actually had a birthday Saturday:) My husband was going to take me on a day trip, but I wasn't feeling up to it so we stayed home. I made a trip to the health food store and then spent the rest of the day piddling at home. We ended up going out for my birthday to one of my favorite restaurants Sunday night.

I want to share a recipe with you today. I made these muffins last week and have really been enjoying them! I put half of them in the freezer in case I couldn't eat them fast enough, but they are almost gone! My favorite way to eat one is with a little almond butter on top~yummy!
I got this recipe from the Tropical Traditions website. There are TONS of recipes using coconut flour on the site! I changed a few minor details to suit me and below is what I did. Hope you enjoy:)

Coconut Walnut Muffins
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 cup pumpkin
5 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey (I think-maybe a little more)
pinch of salt
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

I simply placed everything in the mixing bowl and mixed with mixer until well blended. Line muffin pan with foil muffin liners (I hate paper ones!) and bake at 325 until toothpick comes out clean. My oven took about 15 minutes, but it cooks fast and burns the tops of things if I'm not careful. Makes 12 yummy muffins.


  1. Happy birthday! I'm sorry to hear you weren't up to celebrating - that's so hard. I hope you were able to enjoy your day anyway.

    Thanks for the muffin recipe! :)

  2. Looks delicious! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) And happy belated birthday!

  3. Yummy muffins. I've made them twice and we all devoured them immediately. I love anything with eggs!!
