  • 1 cup pumpkin purée, not pie filling
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 6 tbsp zero-calorie sweetener like Monkfruit, Erythritol, or Swerve

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oat flour, finely ground, certified gluten-free
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.  Very lightly grease an  8-cavity non-stick mini loaf pan or line a 12-cup muffin pan with culinary paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, coconut oil, sweetener, applesauce, egg and vanilla.

    Preparing Mini Gluten-Free Pumpkin Loaf or Muffins
  • Scoop into 6 cavities of the mini loaf pan, smoothing to fill the cavities half full, then add another half scoop and create a mounded top. If using a muffin pan, fill 8 cups, creating rounded tops.
  • Bake for 18 - 24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  • Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, then carefully remove from pan or carefully remove paper liners if making muffins.
