1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

2 Eggs

3 tablespoons of molasses

1 teaspoon vanilla

*or use any all-purpose gluten-free flour blend that does not contain xanthan gum

Directions:

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 standard muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine flour blend, salt, ginger, nutmeg, xanthan gum, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Whisk brown sugar, pumpkin, butter, buttermilk, eggs, molasses and vanilla in a large bowl. Add flour mixture in two additions, stirring until well blended after each addition. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups. **

3. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

** for best results, scoop butter into each muffin cup in a single scoop, filling to the top and so not add additional butter.

NOTE: DO NOT substitute pumpkin pie mix for the canned pumpkin. It produces an overly sweet and spiced muffin

Having pumpkin is also a good source of vitamin C, iron, potassium, and fiber. Even better, pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are rich in protein and good source of iron and healthy unsaturated fat.
