Gluten-Free, Grain-Free Chocolate-Drizzled Pumpkin Muffins ~ A Recipe

Muffins are my favorite go-to for this time of year.  It's cold enough to bake, they're quick to make, they are a yummy breakfast and are also great for snacks and with lunches, and they freeze well.  Since we make a double batch of them each week, I need to change up the ingredients a bit so they don't all end up being almost identical.  Adding a little chocolate drizzle definitely makes them feel like a special treat.  If you'd prefer to opt out of the drizzle, no big dizzle.  They're still the bomb-schnizzle.  Yo.

Grain-Free, Chocolate-Drizzled Pumpkin Muffins
Prep time: 10 min, bake time: 20 min, makes 2 dozen muffins

For the batter:
For the drizzle:
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.  Grease or line 18 muffin tins.  Put all batter ingredients in blender and blend on high for 45-60 seconds.  You might need to use the agitator to make sure everything mixes well.  Pour batter into muffin tins about 2/3 the way up.  Bake for 18-20 minutes or until not jiggly. 
  2. As the muffins cool, mix chocolate chips and coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat until melted.  Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over warm muffins.  Enjoy!


  1. too funny. And looks yummy too. Yo yo yo.

  2. Do you think I could sub persimmon for pumpkin?? Should I give it a whirl or stick with the original?? If you have a second, give me your opinion... I am LOVING your blog and so thankful that a friend shared it with me!

  3. Hi, Andrea!
    You can definitely sub with persimmons; great idea! And thank you for your kind words. :)

  4. These are great. I was wondering, do you think I could just add chocolate chips inside instead of drizzling chocolate on top? I'm always trying to simplify our recipes.

  5. You sure can! I just used the drizzle method to change things up a bit. :)
