Grain-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Tomorrow is the big day and if you are like me, you’ve already begun thinking about how to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. In my humble opinion, the leftovers can be just as incredible as the main event. Less fuss, all the great food and you can get a little creative, veering away from the classic dishes, a little.

We’re headed down to Mexico to spend the holidays with our friends. We’ll be staying on the beach and making a traditional feast for 20, which means lots of leftovers. Rather than living off that same heavy meal for days, I am all about finding creative new ways to reimagine the various foods into new, healthier recipes.

  19. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a standard muffin tin with 12 parchment or silicone baking cups.
  20. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk well.
  21. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, with a whisk to break up any clumps. The dough will be very thick.
  22. Using ¼ cup measure, spoon the batter (which is actually more dough-like), to each of the muffin tins. Gently press the batter down, to fill in the tins.
  23. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. They are ready when they are starting to brown and are not soft when lightly touched on the top center and a toothpick comes out clean.
  24. Let cool several minutes in the tin, then transfer to a cooling rack. Store in the refrigerator for up to three days.

  1. Mmm these muffins look scrumptious. I get very excited seeing a healthier alternative to muffins since certain things I just can’t stomach anymore. I love seeing all those yummy chocolate chunks!

    Thank you Beth for the great info on the collagen. I’m a long-time reader who loves everything about your blog! I’d love to learn how to incorporate collagen in baking. How would one go about figuring out how much to add to a recipe and what, if any, additions or subtractions (liquids &/or dry ingreds.,) would then have to be made to the recipe – could you use your recipe for the “Grain-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Muffins” as an example? As they already sound so delicious & healthy, I thought they’d be a great starting point… Thank you so much Beth!! Best wishes for a successful semester at school balanced with a great plan for plenty of fun time!! Di
