Gluten Free Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins

Jump to recipe

I received a box of Motivator Muffin Mix from FitBodyBakery in exchange for this post.

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s fall. I love fall. Pumpkin and apples…and when you put them together. Holy.Cow. Or rather, holy muffins, in this case!

So, I had planned to make some super-yummy “carmel” apple spice muffins…using applesauce. Color me embarrassed when I realized that my kids had eaten the last of the applesauce, and it wasn’t on my grocery list (along with a spaghetti squash).

And since I’d promised muffins, I had to think on my feet. I wasn’t in the mood to make a run back to HEB since it was mid-afternoon {read: super busy} and The Baby was down for a nap. So I got creative…okay, fine. I had canned pumpkin-it was going to have to work.

Canned pumpkin (in theory) should work out the same as applesauce…right?

But you know what? It’s better. Like way better. And, these muffins are not only delicious, they’re also gluten free! Who said healthy food couldn’t be delicious?

Gluten free doesn't have to mean cardboard, people. These muffins are absolutely delicious and won't blow your diet.

I am absolutely in LOVE with the mixes from FitBody Bakery. Y’all. They are freaking awesome. And you really cannot mess them up!


I added a TON of stuff to the basic mix in this recipe, and they were super light, fluffy, and so, so delicious. Plus, they freeze well!

If you have kids, or you just don’t do gluten, you need to get yourself a box because the boys DEVOURED these.

    Way to improvise!!!!!! What a great substitute and I’m sure tasted super yummy so you couldn’t even tell you were subbing anything! Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty – hope to see you again this weekend.

      Oh my word they were so good! I’m making them again this weekend, but I’m going to do a crumble topping. I may be a wee bit excited about that! LOL
