    Miss_Amy's Note:

    This is adapted from my banana muffin recipe. The muffins are tender and delicious, with no hint that they're GF or vegan! Use fresh or canned pumpkin puree; please not the stuff intended for pumpkin pie. Acceptable egg replacers for this recipe are Ener-G, flax (1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds + 2 Tbsp. water, microwaved in a bowl until gelatinous), or a real egg, if you're feeling extravagant. Optionally, you can throw in 1/2 c. chocolate chips, dried cranberries, raisins, or walnuts. (The chocolate marries amazingly well with the pumpkin spice flavor--try it, you'll like it!)

      These are FANTASTIC! Maybe the best gluten-free recipe I've ever tried. I used a whole egg, 2/3 cup Splenda instead of the sugars, 1-1/3 cup gluten-free baking flour instead of the tapioca starch, rice flour and millet flour, and 1/2 cup applesauce instead of oil. I omitted the pumpkin seeds. I made 6 jumbo muffins that not only looked great, but tasted like regular muffins (not sugar-free, low-fat, and gluten-free). Even with the changes I made, the muffins were AMAZING! The only thing I would change is to add another teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. I'm going to make this recipe (with my alterations) often.

      These were yummy! My one year old scarfed them up, as did my husband (and he is really picky about the gluten free stuff, since he doesn't have to be). I am also allergic to rice, so I had to swap the rice flour for superfine sorghum flour. I also used the Ener-G egg replacer for the egg, canola oil, and arrowroot flour for the tapioca flour because I like it better. A keeper.

      These are awsome pumpkin muffins! I used an egg and replaced the gum with some psyllium husks. Also I reduced the sugar because I don't like it too sweet. Otherwise made as written. They didn't rise a lot, maybe because of the reduced sugar? But they taste absolutely divine, moist and flavourful. I will definitely make them again, thanks for posting!
