Pumpkin Spice Muffins (no egg, no dairy, no gluten!)

Pumpkin Spice Muffins (no egg, no dairy, no gluten!)

Muffins make a great snack or breakfast, and these vegan gluten-free pumpkin spice muffins are a great way to start the day.

Eat them as is or spread a little jam, your favorite nut butter, even dairy-free creamed cheese. (My favorite vegan cream cheese is cashew-based from Miyoko’s Creamery.)

Pumpkin Spice Muffins (no egg, no dairy, no gluten!)


  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds (I prefer Bob’s Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxmeal)
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 ¾ cups gluten free flour blend (I use King Arthur’s GF flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips OR raisins OR nuts (or a combination thereof)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. (Flax eggs serve as an egg substitute). Whisk together ground flax seeds and water. Set aside to thicken.
  3. Line a muffin tin with liners or generously grease the inside of each cup with plant-based butter.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Next, mix the olive oil, vanilla, flax eggs, sugar, and pumpkin puree together in a large bowl until blended.
  6. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir until combined. Fold in cholate chips/nuts/raisins.
  7. Using a large scoop ( I love my coffee scoop for this!), divide the batter into the 12 prepared muffin cups.
  8. Bake  for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the largest muffin comes out clean.
  9. Cool thoroughly. Serve as is or spread with vegan cream cheese, jam/jelly, or with a nut butter.
