Pumpkin Pie Muffins
Modified from http://www.elanaspantry.com/pumpkin-pie-muffins/

1.5 cups almond meal (used Trader Joe's)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ginger, pinch of cloves)
2 tsp oil (used olive)
3 Tbsp vegetable glycerin (or more stevia)
2 eggs
1.25 cup canned pumpkin (increase to 1.5 cups if omitting glycerin)
1/2 tsp NuNaturals vanilla creme stevia
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. In a large bowl combine almond flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
2. In a separate bowl mix oil, glycerin, eggs, pumpkin, stevia, and vanilla until smooth.
3. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
4. Place paper liners in cupcake pan or grease well.

This is ridicously good and I recommend to anyone! This is the best tasting thing I can have during the diet other than guacamole.

Also, instead of muffins, try making bread out of this...it just comes out so much moister and better!

One suggestion is to try half almond meal and half coconut flour (per the recipe) and the bread comes out a little bit better tasting for some reason.

Can you give me links to the items you buy. For example I went to the NuNaturals website to find the vanilla stevia you mentioned but I could not find it. Do you get these ingredients at a health food store?

Thank you! This seems like a good website. Though the things I need are out of stock. A code would be great. I will place an order as soon as the items are available. Thanks again.

Can you find sugar free canned pumpkin. Right now my greatest struggle is finding ingredients that are sugar free. Thanks for the website but is there another website that I can check that will have this item without sugar? Thanks, Lauren

I think that pumpkin naturally has some sugar in it. I'm looking at cans from Whole Foods and Sunflower and they both have 4g sugar per serving. The only ingredient in both is pumpkin.

I'll message you the Iherb code.

I made this into a pumpkin pie bread yesterday and almost ate half the loaf! Its very good. Is it okay for stage one? I am worried about the almond meal containing mold, or is this all safe? Thanks!

Prismatic - the baking should remove the mold from the Almond flour.

We can't buy canned pumpkin here in Ireland, but can I roast pumpkin, blend it and use it that way instead? I'd love to try this recipe. That said, I made a pumpkin puree to go with some turkey burgers and it was way too sweet for me. I only had a couple mouthfuls and I just didn't like it... and the following day I felt awful, like I had a really bad hangover. So it mightn't suit me anyway?

As far as I know this recipe is completely safe and OK on the diet. If the pumpkin does contain some sugar, it is a very low amount. I only eat one slice per day of the bread and feel that the pumpkin has good digestive properties. I had leaky gut real bad and this didn't give me a reaction. If you are allergic or notice bad effects, then do not continue to eat it.

Thanks Raster! I will try it. I was honestly worried about the sugar but I will try it and see how I feel.

I'm in the process of making this recipe. Have slightly changed some of the ingredients. More olive oil and three eggs instead of two, and no glycerin. I also had to add half a cup or so of water because the mixture was a little too thick. Will report back on how it turns out later.

Well, it came out pretty good. Tasty and moist. I made a bread though and not muffins. Toasted with coconut oil is the perfect complement. Not sure if those of us on stage 1 of the diet should be eating this, since it does contain sugar. I don't think I'll be baking another one for quite a while now. Will stick to coconut/almond, buckwheat and teff bread.

I totally agree M!!! :D I don't like the sugar in it. Though it is nice to know that eventually I can cook this. I am sure it is wonderful!
Thanks

I tried a version last night with 1/2 cup buckwheat, 1/2 cup coconut flour/1/2 cup almond flour. I threw in an extra egg and probably another 1/4 cup of oil.. they turned out way better than the last batch I made where I just kept adding water when the dough was too dry.

they are hearty and feel even more filling to me.

So this IS ok for the first part of the diet? :) Just double checking. Not using any sugar, just the stevia and no veggie glycerin.

Hy the pumpkin has 4 grams of natural sugars in one can, so I have not made this recipe yet. I would wait, but it up to you if you want to try it. :) Candida loves sugar but many people have been fine with this recipe. It up to you how strict you feel you need to be based on your symptoms and body.

Thanks, Lauren

There is 3g of natural sugar found in a head of lettuce, so if there are 4 grams of natural sugar found in the can of pumpkin, than it is completely OK! A whole red onion contains 4g of sugar.

I'd just like to add that the reason I'm no longer eating this is because it gave me a reaction. Eating lettuce with it's 3g of sugar doesn't give me a reaction, but pumpkin does. Some people may be OK with it but not everyone will. Plus, I don't remember pumpkin being on the allowed foods list, though I could be wrong here. Try it as a test food.
