These fluffy pumpkin muffins are full of pumpkin spice flavor and topped with an easy maple glaze that truly takes them to the next level.



  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup puréed pumpkin (or sweet potato)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the coconut oil, pumpkin, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide batter evenly between the muffin liners.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. To make the glaze: whisk together the powdered sugar maple syrup, milk, and pumpkin pie spice. If it’s too thick, add 1 teaspoon of milk. Once the muffins are completely cool, spoon glaze over top. Enjoy!


I like to use canned purée because it makes a fluffier muffin than sweet potato or pumpkin purée that is mashed by hand.
