Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins РThese light, fluffy pumpkin cornbread muffins are an all-time favorite. The perfect cozy accompaniment to chilis, soups, salads, and more! (Gluten & Dairy Free) 



  • 1 1/4 cups cornmeal
  • 1 cup gluten free 1 to 1 baking mix, like Bob’s Red Mill
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 cup milk (I use unsweetened almondmilk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil, melted butter, or ghee


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk to combine. Whisk in the pumpkin, milk, eggs, syrup, and oil. Stir until just combined and no dry clumps remain.
  3. Scoop batter into a standard 12-cup muffin pan (spray or grease if not nonstick).
  4. Bake 17-20 minutes, or until cooked through (a toothpick will come out clean when inserted in the center of a muffin) and slightly golden.
  5. Allow to cool slightly, then serve warm!
