Pumpkin Raisin Muffins {Grain-Free, Primal & GAPS Friendly}

These Grain-free pumpkin raisin muffins have quickly become a weekly favorite in our household.

Their inspiration comes from one of my favorite cookbooks “Every Day Paleo Family Cookbook” by Sarah Fragoso. The reason I love this cookbook is because it lives up to its title EVERY DAY…as in you can easily fit these recipes into everyday life…which is important when feeding a busy family a nourishing whole foods diet. So I share this recipe that has been working for us.

  3. Add dry ingredients to a medium mixing bowl – almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt
  4. Add wet ingredients to a large mixing bowl – pumpkin puree, eggs, honey, butter.
  5. Mix with handheld blender (I use KitchenAid mixer)
  6. Combine dry ingredients with wet in large mixing bowl and blend until smooth
  7. Add raisins and fold in gently
  8. Fill each muffin space about 3/4 full and bake for 20 – 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Keeping it simple. ENJOY.

With love and warmth,

P.S. Just a disclaimer…pure bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) is allowed on the full GAPS diet for those who do not have low stomach acid issues. I recommend proceeding with caution, and listening to your body.

  1. This recipe sounds great! Are there any other flours we can use instead of almond flour? My son has a sensitivity to both almonds and eggs – anything we can also substitute for eggs?

  2. Love your muffin recipe! Super quick & easy to make and all 3 kids (ages 8, 4, and 1) inhale these 🙂

    We substitute coconut oil for the ghee in the recipe then whip butter and some honey together and add a dollop on top of hot muffins for those of us who can have dairy.
