Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

These muffins make for a quick healthy breakfast or snack during the Fall and Winter months.

They contain nutrient-dense egg protein and healthy fats that will help to fuel you right.

I like to make a large batch, freeze them and grab one or two whenever I’m short on time and/or have limited healthy options to feed my hunger.

They thaw out fast at room temperature or you can throw them into the microwave for an even quicker defrost (30 secs or so).

If you are eating this muffin warm, I highly recommend adding some butter/ghee to it. If you are eating it at room temperature or slightly cold, try it with some nut butter.
