Here is my pumpkin muffins a.k.a gingerbread muffins recipe.
This recipe has been especially created for AIPers but even if you are not following the Auto Immune Protocol, I promise you that you will love it! And even though it is still treat (and of course you shouldn’t eat too many treats) I think it is a pretty healthy treat. Hope you will enjoy!
This recipe uses tigernut flour (or almond flour for those who are not on AIP). If you are on AIP and still in the elimination phase, unfortunately there are no possible substitution for the tigernut flour. Why? Because all the other AIP compliant flours have very different texture and they all need their own amount of liquid. So it is not possible to replace the tigernut flour with another flour without altering the entire recipe.
On the other hand, if you are not on AIP nor nut intolerant you can subsitute almond flour for tigernut flour on a 1:1 basis. And if you are looking for more tigernut/almond flour recipes you can check the following recipes :
- coconut free banana bread
- carob zucchini bread
- fudgy brownies
- banana blueberry muffins
- zucchini and pesto muffins
- zucchini and tuna bread
If you don’t have a muffin pan or simply don’t fell like having muffins, you can make this as a loaf instead of muffins.
Can you freeze these?
Yes! They freeze extremely well. Which is so convenient!! So nice to have a delicious snack or dessert that is ready to be eaten in the freezer (ok just need to be defrost). About defreezing one of these delicious muffins, you can either take it out of the freezer a few hours ahead or pop it in the microwave oven (if you still have one, like me, and yes I know that they are very controversial health wise but nobody’s perfect lol) for 1 minute or pop it in the oven for a few minutes.
