Get the Recipe: Gluten-free Vegan Pumpkin Muffins

Super yummy gluten-free vegan pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips, almonds and peanut butter! Fluffy and soft, they are perfect a snack or dessert that's ready in 30 minutes.


  • 1 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour, self-raising
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut sugar
  • 1 cup plant based milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 flax eggs, (1 flax egg = 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and 2 tbsp water, set aside for 10 minutes)
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup flaked almonds


  • Conventional oven
  • Muffin tray
  • Mixing bowl


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F) and lightly grease a muffin tray.
  • Add the gluten-free oat flour, gluten-free self-raising flour, baking soda, cinnamon and coconut sugar to a large mixing bowl. Mix together well.
  • Now add plant based milk, apple cider vinegar, pumpkin purée, flax eggs, peanut butter and apple sauce. Mix together once again, then finally mix in the dairy-free chocolate chips and flaked almonds.
  • Divide the batter evenly across the muffin tray, filling the divisions almost all the way to the top (or around 3/4, if using muffin cases).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for around 18-20 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean from the centre. Allow to cool for around 10 minutes before removing from the muffin tray and serving.



  • If you want to keep this recipe completely oil-free and still prevent sticking, you can use muffin cases instead.
  • If not using self-raising gluten-free flour, add 1/2 tsp more baking soda. 
  • These pumpkin muffins keep in the fridge, covered or in an airtight container, for 5-6 days. You can also freeze them in a freezer-friendly container for around 2 months.
