Equipment

  • Mini Muffin Tray
  • Spatula
  • Mixing Bowl

Ingredients
  

Mini Muffins

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup almond butter can sub any nut/seed butter
  • 2 flax eggs can sub 2 eggs whisked
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Vegan Frosting

  • 1 cup vegan yogurt plain or vanilla
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond milk depending on yogurt consistency
  • splash vanilla if using plain
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice

Instructions
 

  • Make the two flax eggs by combining 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal with 7.5 tbsp water. Let sit for 10 minutes until it gels. Can substitute with 2 eggs
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Whisk together all mini muffin ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined
  • Spray mini muffin tray with oil and fill each tin about 3/4 of the way
  • Bake for 15-16 minutes at 350 (see notes for regular sized muffins)
  • Take the mini muffins out to cool
  • While mini muffins are cooling, whisk together frosting
  • Once mini muffins are cool, pour frosting over the top using a spoon for each one

Notes

  1. For regular sized muffins, bake at 350 degrees for 22-23 minutes
  2. For the frosting, I would wait to pour the frosting on the muffins until they are ready to enjoy because after a day, the frosting tends to become more transparent as it soaks into the muffin!
