Pumpkin is the whole reason for the fall season. Celebrate crunchy leaves and crisp air with these vegan, flourless pumpkin spice muffins!

The taste of fall is something that never gets old. In my opinion, the flavors of the season don’t last long enough. One of my favorite morning treats to enjoy while sipping my green tea is a delicious muffin. The problem is, what’s available in most stores doesn’t meet my health requirements. I avoid dairy, gluten, and excess sugar which are three ingredients people often make muffins with. I discovered a recipe for flourless, vegan pumpkin spice muffins that will leave you wondering why those three ingredients would ever be needed again to satisfy your next muffin craving. The centers are moist, the base has just the right amount of crisp, and the pumpkin flavor mixed with the chocolate melts in your mouth. If you are planning a celebration and want to make these really festive, use the muffins as your cake and frost them however you please to make healthy cupcakes. This is a recipe I plan on making all throughout the season until Thanksgiving, and it is a great way to enjoy this tasty treat while feeling guilt-free!
