Wheat-Free, Low-Carb Pumpkin Muffins

Total Time
Prep 7 mins
Cook 25 mins

These are easy to prepare, are low carb, moist and delicious. They'd pass for a cupcake with a little frosting, too. The secret is in the finely ground flax seed meal - either grind your own or give the commercially ground meal about ten extra seconds in your blade coffee/spice grinder or blender. Cook's note: if you want to increase the yield on these, add 1/2 cup milk: almond, rice, or soy. And add 1 1/2 cups of bran. When I'm not doing wheat-free, I use wheat bran, but oat bran will do. If you do go the bran route, add 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp plain vinegar to the recipe: these puppies will rise better if you do. (thanks for posting a picture, sweetcakes!)

These muffins are soo tasty! They really are very moist and if you wanted to splurge a little you could drizzle some icing on top. I do like these as is though..they are that good! I made the original recipe and they were done in 19 min in my stove. Thanks for posting this, I'll be making these all the time!

This recipe is quite good!

I modified by using 1 whole egg 3 whites, and liquid stevia instead of Splenda. I also used Energy brown rice flour since I was out of soy flour. The recipe worked out just fine....very good recipe - thanks!

I am not a big fan of soy flour, but trying to be a little more gluten-free in the diet, so decided to try these. They are really very moist and have lots of flavor. The texture is better than I expected, and I think that is because of the flax seed meal. I also like the texture whole flax seeds, so will add some to the mix next time. Thanks for this keeper.
