Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

With the first hint of autumn air finally crawling into Phoenix, I decided it was time to whip up a batch of pumpkin muffins to satisfy my sweet tooth. I found a recipe I liked from Elana’s Pantry, but modified it slightly to make it a bit sweeter and increase the quantity. You can also add some fun ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, or candy pieces if you want to make it even sweeter. My 3 year old likes to add “mushalooms”, also known in English as marshmallows, to make it a sweet after school treat!
